Because SF6 is a colorless, odorless, non-flammable, extremely potent greenhouse gas, it makes it an excellent choice for an electrical insulator. While SF6 may not be a toxic gas, exposure to it can cause serious harm to your health, such as suffocation, eye irritation, skin rashes, and chemical burns. Due to the fact that SF6 is so potent, it is crucial that your SF6 gas handling needs are handled by an NCE technician.
