I find it interesting that some polymer substrate banknotes don't have or cause problems because of a tropical climate, while others do

(see: BC vai emitir novas notas para pôr fim as falhas da nova dobra ? Téla Nón  )

DelaRue had troubles with its polymer notes for Sao Tome.

Who makes the ones for T&T (the Canadians perhaps?).

Redlock raises an interesting point. Apparently, polymers are not all the same. Is there a link between failing in the tropics and supplier of the note? Do we even know what the failure is? Note falling apart? Becoming sticky? Discolouring?
