 +**SF<sub>6</sub>** (or in simple notation **SF6**) - gas used for high-voltage insulation.
 +
 +The gas is much better electrical insulator than air, and enables [[gas-insulated switchgear]] (GIS) installations to be more compact than air-insulated (AIS) alternatives. The footprint of GIS substations can be up to 70% smaller than AIS substations.[([[http://www.abb.com/cawp/abbzh250/dc2dd530d4fa008cc12577680027299e.aspx|Compact gas-insulated switchgear, Ras laffan, Qatar, ABB {accessed 2015-09-02}]])]
