HTP means High Temperature Plastics (or Polymers). These are plastics that withstand high temperatures while retaining desirable chemical and/or mechanical properties. Surely the most familiar HTP is Teflon (polytetrafluoroethylene), which is one of a series of "fluoropolymer" HTPs. Other examples, among many, are Polyetherimide (PEI) and Polyether ether ketone(PEEK). Teflon, remarkably, is nearly unaffected by brief exposure to temperatures up to about 260C/500F, and tolerates up to 200C/392F almost indefinitely.
