Polymer just refers to how the molecules are arranged. All plastics are polymers. Being made of "polymer" doesn't mean its made of good plastic. Condoms are made of polymer. Being made of polymer could mean its made of wool or silk, they're both polymers. The "polymer" is just a word used by marketers to make you think its something fancy.
