This valve, now famous throughout the world, is covered by a patent owned by Abate Basilio which ensures greater reliability to the moulds.

This valve with a safe closure eliminates jamming and the consequent back flow of plastic into the valve and its air supply channels, thus avoiding prolonged machine downtime.

It is well known that one of the most common and expensive problem when using air valves is the jamming and the back flow of plastic into the valve and its air supply channels. This problem results in prolonged machine downtime and many working hours to repair the mould. With the VABA valve the back flow problem is eliminated thus ensuring utmost efficiency.


Thanks to its technology, flexibility and analytical approach, Abate Basilio does not only manufacture high performance moulds for the injection of plastic materials, but also provides customized solutions for any project. Thanks to the control of the entire production chain, from planning to delivery, each mould ensures unique quality, durability and performance.
