Vinyl Institute – Member
The Vinyl Institute is a U.S. trade association representing the leading manufacturers of vinyl, vinyl chloride monomer, vinyl additives and modifiers, and vinyl packaging materials. The association advocates the responsible manufacture of vinyl resins, life cycle management of vinyl products and promotion of the value of vinyl to society. Since the late 1980s, more than 20 life-cycle evaluations have been completed on PVC (vinyl) building products, many of them comparing those products to similar products made of other materials. According to the Vinyl Institute, PVC products have been found to perform favorably in terms of energy efficiency, thermal-insulating value, low contribution to greenhouse gases, and product durability, which means using fewer resources.
