The Flaretite seal is a gasket-like seal designed specifically for making a tight, leak-resistant connection between flared tubing connections used in air-conditioning/refrigeration applications. The stamped copper ring has 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 (6, 7.5, 12, 16, 19-mm) refrigeration linesets. The purple (color-coded for HVAC/R 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.
