Lead-free brass flare fittings are economical, reusable and resistant to mechanical pullout. They are commonly used for gasoline, grease, oil, water, vacuum, air lines, L.P. and natural gas. In combination with forged nuts (part 412, 413 or 413R) they can be used for refrigeration, air conditioning and other applications involving hard to hold liquids and gases. Lead-free brass is not more than a weighted average of 0.25% lead when used with respect to the wetted surfaces of pipes and pipe and plumbing fittings and fixtures.
