Summary

High thermal performance (HTP) is a Lockheed developed third generation reusable surface insulation that comprises a mixture of silica fibers, alumina fibers, and a binder. HTP has been successfully manufactured as cast production billets with densities ranging from 192 to 961 kg/m3 (12 to 60 lb/ft3). Lockheed Missiles & Space Company has recently conducted a program characterizing pertinent physical, mechanical, and thermal properties ofHTP-6 insulation. HTP-6 material is 96 kg/m3 (6 lb/ft3) in density. The material was characterized for density, compressive strength, tensile strength, thermal expansion, and thermal conductivity.
