These fittings are designed to provide a secure, leak-proof seal with stainless steel tubing. They feature a unique design that has been proven to perform in a variety of extreme conditions and environments.

In addition, the fittings are made with high-grade stainless steel components, which are corrosion-resistant and durable. Plus, they are designed to handle high temperatures and pressures.

This makes them perfect for use with stainless steel tubing, as they can stand up to the demands of the application.

 Is it better to solder or use compression fitting?

When it comes to connecting pipes, many professionals have to make a choice between soldering and using compression fittings. Both are effective options, but there are some distinct advantages to using compression fittings.

When compared to soldering, the main benefit of using compression fittings is the speed and ease of installation. There is no need to pre-treat the pipe or clean any oxidation or corrosion before installing a compression fitting. This means that the installer can save a lot of time in the process, especially on larger projects.

Another advantage of using compression fittings is that they form an airtight seal that won’t leak as a soldered joint could. With Superlok compression fittings, you also get added peace of mind due to their Zero Leak Technology that prevents over-tightening, eliminating the risk of leaks.

When it comes to dismantling a system, soldering can be very difficult, as it involves heating up the joint and sometimes applying extra force to break the seal. With compression fittings, you can easily remove them and install new ones without having to resolder the connection.


When it comes to compression fittings, Superlok provides the most reliable solution. Their zero-leak technology ensures a secure connection. There are no problems that can arise from over or under-tightening.

The Superlok product line is designed to save time and improve productivity. These fittings can be interchanged with other top-fitting brands, offering even more flexibility and convenience. They also provide peace of mind when it comes to ensuring a secure connection. So, why not make them part of your next project?
