Sulfur Hexafluoride Supplier to Mexico AOC Mexico S.A. de C.V., the trusted provider of this colorless, odorless, liquefied gas in Mexico, conveys it in cylinders and tube trailers under its own vapor pressure, in accordance with customary industry standards and practices. Sulfur Hexafluoride (SF₆) is typically formed in specified quantities by the direct fluorination of high-purity sulfur. Sulfur Hexafluoride’s generally high density and lack of motion are what make it preferable for use as an electrical insulator in high-voltage transformers, transmission lines, and microwave antennas. It is equally useful as an insulating gas in double-windowpane glass. That SF6 is a high-density inert gas can prevent its use as well as widen it; it’s been identified as having a high Global Warming Potential (GWP). That being the case, researchers are now actively pursuing a more environmentally attractive choice to reduce its use. For the time being, it holds on to its wide acceptance as the preferred insulator in high-voltage applications, but it’s best applied cautiously and returned for reclamation instead of just vented in the process of repairing equipment. High-purity Sulfur Hexafluoride is used extensively as an etchant in semiconductor manufacture, as a good source of fluorine.
