High precision measurements of the linear part of the Paschen curve are reported for 1-C3F6/SF6 mixtures. From these measurements, values for the pressure-reduced limiting electric field strength (E/p)lim and the associated figure of merit M are derived. These two parameters can be used to characterise the insulating properties of a strongly electronegative gas or gas mixture. The present measurements confirm the existence of positive synergism.
