A very powerful greenhouse gas, composed of one sulfur and six fluorine atoms, used primarily in electrical transmission and distribution systems.
chemical formula SF6, sulfur hexafluoride has a TLV of 1,000ppm and is used as an etch gas.
Sulfur hexafluoride is a manmade greenhouse gas that is currently released only in very small quantities due to electric power equipment gas leaks and losses. These small quantities can still make a large impact on the global climate; SF6 has a global warming potential almost 24,000 times greater than carbon dioxide over a 100-year time horizon.
A gas used to insulate high-voltage switches and transformers, listed as a greenhouse gas in the Kyoto Protocol.
A colorless gas soluble in alcohol and ether, slightly soluble in water. Used as a dielectric in electronics.
SF6 is among the six types of greenhouse gases to be curbed under the Kyoto Protocol. SF6 is a synthetic industrial gas largely used in heavy industry to insulate high-voltage equipment and to assist in the manufacturing of cable-cooling systems. There are no natural sources of SF6. SF6 has an atmospheric lifetime of 3,200 years. Its 100-year GWP is currently estimated to be 22,200 times that of CO2.
Extremely unreactive gas, formula SF6, which is of entirely anthropogenic origin. It is used as a dielectric insulator or to provide a chemically inert atmosphere. Due to its inertness, SF6 has a very long atmospheric lifetime (1000 years) and has been used to estimate the age of stratospheric air. It is also used as a chemical tracer in tropospheric field experiments.
Sulfur hexafluoride is an inorganic compound with the formula SF6. This species is a gas at standard conditions. SF6 has an octahedral geometry, consisting of six fluorine atoms attached to a central sulfur atom.
