These seals are a pretty simple concept. They are basically a thin (.010") aluminum preform. They aren't a compression fitting, but rather a thin layer of aluminum that fills in the imperfections of the flare when the fitting is tightened.

I have them installed, but didn't have time to try bleeding the brake system yet. I pumped them quite a bit and didn't have any leaks. Once I get all the air out, I'll know for sure.

It should be noted that these are used for aircraft line repair (commercial, private and military).
