Selecting Low cost, High heat-resistant plastics

Hello,

For a current project, I am searching for high operating temperature (200C-300C), Medium Strength (~80 Mpa UTS) and low cost plastics (or at least not extremely expensive).

So far the closest I found is nylon 6/6 reinforced with 30% carbon fiber. I also found something called Vespal made by dupont, with fitting properties.

Inexpensive AND extreme performance? Does it have to be plastic?

Well, not necessarily I just assumed the material would be a plastic. Any suggestions?
