Default whats the best to use to help seal thread for air supply?

hello. im installing a steel braided line for the trinity ak47 like expansion chamber and is wondering whats the best material to put on the threads before i tighten them? i know teflon tape is used to help seal liquid on joints, but thats all i found in my garage. i tried the teflon tape and i can still hear a leak. does anyone know what i can use or have any advice/tips? thank you for reading.

I was going to say: Make sure your threads are CLEAN and free from debris (old tape, thread locker) then one or two full wraps of Teflon tape and tighten it enough to be secure. You don't need to strong arm the fittings on...

Good to see you solved it yourself!

Good work!
