The heck??

The polymer $50 and $100 currency are interesting...
Unrippable and unwashable but melts under heat?

Is this already widely available to citizens?

Thanks for the interesting find!

I don't think it's a big issue. Just don't stick your wallet in the oven. The benefits of plastic money far outweighs the heat issue. They wont melt under regular heat.

They are widely available now. It's hard to find an old 50/100$ bill now. They are going to replace the 20$, 10$ and 5$ ones soon too.

According to anecdotal reports from Brittney Halldorson, a teller at the Interior Savings Credit Union in Kelowna, B.C., she’s heard of cases where several of the bills have melted together inside a hot car.
Would kind of suck to leave you wallet in your car, going to the beach, to come back to a bunch of melted bills.

But yes, it is an issue but I don't think there have been any confirmed reports of this; just rumours.

Heh, I guess maybe the canadian government made them like that on purpose so they aren't taken out the country.

I forget most of your country is kind of...

Still, I was in montreal towards the end of september, and weather was nice.

Are the molten bills still usable?

It would suck to find out that a couple 50's and 100's stored in a hot car were now scraps of plastic.

Cheers!

If the serial number on the bills are still readable, then the bank will exchange them.

Glad to hear.

Could you also comment on how it's "impossible" to rip?
You can still cut it with scissors, right?

Cheers!

On the surface it would seem pretty silly to produce plastic currency if it can't take heat.
