Tech/Engineering - Engineering (general) / pump assembly manual
Italian term or phrase: specularità
Dear folks,

Please, would anyone know how to best translate this word?

It is in the context of assembling pumps. Below are a few examples:

Prima del montaggio del dispositivo di tenuta accertarsi della perfetta specularità tra le due superfici di strisciamento dei dischi di tenuta e le ralle.

Le superfici di contatto tra le ralle mobile e anelli di tenuta sono a superficie speculare in modo da realizzare la tenuta per strisciamento

Would "mirroring" or perhaps simply "alignment" be acceptable?

Many thanks in advance!
