A new online resource and trading tool has emerged for the global $60 billion vinyl and PVC industries. VinylNetwork -- based in Singapore -- is designed to help raw-material suppliers, manufacturers, processors, purchasing agents, and other professionals source and trade vinyl or PVC products over the Internet. Providing complete price transparency, VinylNetwork lets buyers and sellers negotiate in real time based on multiple parameters such as price, payment terms, and delivery. Founders Daniel Thong and Sumitro Wijaya say they intend to provide a rewarding trade experience by focusing on this specialized segment rather than the entire plastics industry. The site also includes a section on technical issues, industry news, and regulatory issues. Site usage is free, and there is no subscription fee for members.
