"TPI" is just how many threads per inch, or the "thread pitch" needed. I don't recall right off what the "UN" in "UNEF" stands for, but it not only states "extra fine" but the form of the threads (square, round, 45º angle, etc.) as well.

UNEF=Unified Extra Fine Thread Series
UNF=Unified Fine Thread Series

Is the standard AR15 flash hider UNEF or UNF threaded?

Thanks,
