Mould & Die Solutions are in the unique position in South Africa of being able to supply all three commonly used standards -
Vap was originally introduced into the Spanish market as a "modified" Euro equivalent, in an attempt to lock customers into using the Vap brand. Some of the components have identical specifications to the Euro standard, whilst others are slightly different. In 2010 the originators of the Vap standard, Vap Spain, closed. However this standard is still extremely popular, especially in the Spanish market, and various manufacturers produce it.
The DME standard has been around for a long time and is still popular in South Africa. For many years it had the price advantage over certain Euro brands. However, in recent years, due to the increasing popularity of the Euro Standard,even DME themselves have recognised the need to offer both their traditional DME sizes as well as the Euro standard.
All our mould components are imported from reputable international companies -
