Organic Polymer is a naturally obtained resource that can be used as a direct substitute of Polymer for the purposes of crafting. Polymer is consumed before Organic Polymer in the Fabricator and Tek Replicator. Though Organic Polymer is not used to craft Ghillie Armor in Primitive Plus, instead Feathers are used.
It can be harvested by killing Kairuku, Mantis, Hesperornis and Karkinos. It can also be acquired as a loot drop from Deathworm and by gathering from specific plants on Aberration. It spoils in thirty minutes.
With the addition of the Achatina to the tamable creatures, you can harvest Organic Polymer from the tamed beast along with Cementing Paste. While the Organic Polymer is left in the Achatina its spoil time is increased to 1hr 30mins. You can replace Organic Polymer into the Achatina after being removed.
Using the Industrial Grinder, grinding objects crafted with polymer gives organic polymer instead.
Organic Polymer can also be used as a "suicide pill." When consumed it does 500 damage to the player, which will kill most players instantly.
