Es esencial que se utilicen solamente abocardados de medida métrica

No hay mucho contexto, pero si se trata de tubería (de cobre por ej.) por ahí van los tiros.
Flare = abocardado
Metric unit = unidad métrica (por ej. mm en lugar de pulgadas)
Se refiere a que se utilicen flaring tools (abocardadores)con los orificios en mm ( 6 mm, 8 mm, 10 mm, etc.)
Otros abocardadores vienen con los orificios en pulgadas (1/4", 3/8", etc)

Flare (abocardado) es el ensanchamiento en forma acampanada del extremo del tubo, que sirve para unir éste a otro elemento roscado mediante una tuerca que se pasa por el tubo antes de abocardarlo.
