If you find your disc brakes or hydraulic cylinder leaking then it is likely you have screwed the 3/8 inch nut on your hydraulic lines. directly into a component that requires an adaptor nut to complete termination.
Your hydraulic line connector is like to require an olive flange.
If you have not installed an olive flange then your connection will leak.
Calipers do not have olive flanges, therefore, you will need an adaptor nut.
Notice the lower hole on the right-hand image. This is a plastic insert, There is no olive flange inside this hole.
Teflon tape is recommended to be used on all fittings. Disc brakes can be either made from steel and be coated in dacroment or gal.

Finally, brass is not a suitable metal for bonding hence the use of Teflon tape is recommended,
