Default Coolant tubes

Does anyone know what type of seal is used where you bolt the coolant tubes into the lower intake? Thanks in advance!

THE coolant tubes don't use any seals they are just bolted down to the intake, if they are leaking they may be rusted out, or the Throttle body gasket is leaking as it has coolant lines that pass through it.
