Dielectric loss tangent and permittivity of polytetrafluoroethylene (Teflon), high-density (HD) polyethylene, and cross-linked polystyrene (Rexolite) were measured at temperature range from 28 to 84 K and frequency of approximately 18 GHz. The material properties were determined by measurements of the resonant frequency and the Q factor of a TE011 mode cylindrical superconducting cavity containing a sample under test. It has been demonstrated that these materials exhibit very low losses at cryogenic temperatures (2×10-6 for Teflon, 5×10-5 for HD polyethylene and 1.1×10-4 for Rexolite). Due to low losses, these materials can be useful in construction of various high-Q factor microwave devices for operation at cryogenic temperatures
