Specific gravity


I'm looking for a liquid that has a specific gravity of at least 7. Hopefully something not to toxic...

A specific gravity of 7? That is DENSE! Such a substance would be 7 times as dense as water, and water is relatively heavy!

Get in touch with a major chemical supplier such as Fisher, Sigma-Aldrich, or Mallinkrodt-Baker. The big companies have technical sales numbers that you can call, and they would probably be happy to help you pick out the best chemical for your application.
