Flares are compression fitting commonly used with usually soft steel, aluminum, and copper tubing, but sometimes are also used stainless steel and other materials. Tube flaring is considered to be a cold working forging operation. After assembly, flares produce a leak-tight and pressure-resistant seal with a high degree of long-term reliability. The connection has the ability to close and open the connection repeatedly without leaks. The flared seal is an appropriate alternative to solder joints and does not require using an open flame. The joint is widely used and easily created with one simple and reliable tool.
Most often flaring used to make:
-Air conditioning connections
-Underground plumbing connections
-Gas lines connections
-Oil supply lines
-Water service entrance
-Brake flaring tools
