Fitting seals

Flaretite seals, available in stainless steel or copper, have concentric sealing rings stamped across the entire flared face. They compensate for misalignments or imperfections in the flare of a tube or fitting. Each seal is coated with Vibra-Seal coating, which stops weeps and leaks caused by scratches, gouges, pitting, and production imperfections in tube or fitting flare surfaces. — Flaretite
