Why would hard vacuum be a problem to plastic?  Could the plastic be 
shielding from the UV etc.  What are those other things in space that you 
are talking about.  X-rays, hard radiation, dust, etc.?  I see a problem 
going on here.  URGH!

Some of the bonding agents evaporate out of the plastic in vacume.

Yes, all those and more.  Also reaction with charged chemicals your runing
into and hudreds of thousands of miles per secound.
