Sulfur Hexafluoride (SF₆) is most often formed in bunches by means of the direct fluorination of high-purity sulfur.

Sulfur Hexafluoride’s generally high density and inertness pretty much cements its use as an electrical insulator in high-voltage transformers, transmission lines, and microwave antennas. It also has been used as an insulating gas in double-windowpane glass. That SF6 is a high-density inert gas can prevent its use as well as extend it; it’s been identified as having a high Global Warming Potential (GWP). As such, researchers are now actively looking to find an environmentally friendlier substitute to reduce its use. At this juncture, it remains widely regarded as the best insulator for high-voltage applications, but it ought to be used with caution and brought back for reclamation rather than simply vented at the time equipment is being repaired.

High-purity Sulfur Hexafluoride is very often used as an etchant in semiconductor production, as a ready source of fluorine.
