Sealing surface, the term given by Routledge Technical Dictionary, may be the more generic term.

Dichtfläche f
FERTIG Kunststoffinstallationen, KER & GLAS, MASCHINEN sealing surface

Ernst is a bit more specific:
Dichtfläche f mit formschlüssiger Dichtung (Flansch) / raised and flat face

Maybe one of these will help you get on the right track. Gotta run. Good luck.
