IUPAC definition. Causing confusion regarding polymers[change source]
From English version:
IUPAC definition Generic term used in the case of polymeric material that may contain other substances to improve performance and/or reduce costs.
Note 1: The use of this term instead of polymer is a source of confusion and thus is not recommended.
Note 2: This term is used in polymer engineering for materials often compounded that can be processed by flow
The page mentions polymers, let's clarify that up a bit.
