Polymer is a resource in ARK: Survival Evolved. It is used to make durable tools, weapons and armor.

Organic Polymer.png Organic Polymer, a natural version of Polymer that can be obtained from killing Kairuku.png Kairuku, Hesperornis.png Hesperornis, Mantis.png Mantis and Karkinos.png Karkinos can always be used in place of Polymer, but is not as ideal because it has a spoil timer and can only stack in 10's instead of normal polymer's 100 stack limit.

Corrupted Nodule (Extinction).png Corrupted Nodule Extinction Icon.png is also a natural version of Polymer, found on Extinction. It can be harvested from dead Corrupted Creatures in the Wasteland.

On Ragnarok, however, if you have tamed a Griffin.png Griffin, a really good strategy would be flying over to the beach of the volcano area (with black sand), divebomb a bunch of Mantises, and with the Griffin's fast speed fly over to your home, and use the Organic Polymer as a subsitute for the normal Polymer.
