FVA Overview

The FVA is a coalition of trade organizations, materials suppliers, compounders, formulators, molders and fabricators, who are currently concerned with regulatory and legislative attempts to debate, limit or “de-select” flexible vinyl products in commerce. The FVA provides messaging and advocacy on the proven safety, economy and utility of flexible PVC, a material used in a wide range of health care, recreational, military, automotive, building, flooring, construction and packaging applications.
