There are a few alternatives to Polymer.

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.

Corrupted Nodules are another natural type of Polymer, this can be found on Extinction.

Harvest it from deceased Corrupted Creatures in the Wasteland.
