Sulfur Hexafluoride (SF₆) is normally prepared in batches through the direct fluorination of high-purity sulfur.

Sulfur Hexafluoride’s generally high density and inertness make it perfect for application 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. SF6’s applicability as a high-density inert gas is also a limitation; it has a high Global Warming Potential (GWP). As such, research is now seriously underway to find an environmentally friendlier substitute to cut back on its use. For the time being, it remains widely regarded as the preferred insulator in high-voltage applications, but it ought to be used with caution and brought back for reclamation instead of just vented during equipment repair.

High-purity Sulfur Hexafluoride has considerable application as an etchant in semiconductor production, as a controllable source of fluorine.
