RectorSeal has been named the master distributor in the North America and Australia HVACR markets for the Flaretite seal. Flaretite is the industry’s first gasket-like seal designed specifically for making a tight, leak-resistant connection between flared tubing connections used in air-conditioning/refrigeration applications.
The Flaretite seal is a stamped copper ring with concentric ridges formed by a baked-on Loctite Vibra-Seal coating. The ridges create multiple sealing points of contact to prevent leaks from copper tubing flare connections used with 1/4, 3/8, 1/2, 5/8, and 3/4-inch refrigeration linesets. The purple (color-coded for HVACR applications) coating is a dried, pliable sealant that flexes into pits, micro depressions, scratches and other imperfections that potentially lead to refrigerant leaks from copper tubing flares. Flaretite also features three stamped notches to help clip-seal it and hold it in place during compression fitting tightening.
