How To Get Organic Polymer

Organic Polymer is a resource in ARK Survival Evolved.

Organic Polymer is a natural version of Polymer that you can get from killing Kairuku, Hesperornis, Mantis, Karkinos, and harvesting beehives.

You can use it instead of Polymer but it has a spoil timer and can only be stacked up to 20 in comparison to the usual 100 for regular Polymer.


Players can use it instead of Polymer to craft a number of items which you can find below.

Crafting With Organic Polymer

Organic Polymer and regular Polymer can craft the following items:


  • Canteen
  • Charge Battery
  • Gas Mask
  • GPS
  • Spray Painter
  • Transponder Node
  • Transponder Tracker
  • Soap


  • Heavy Miner's Helmet
  • SCUBA Tank
