The powdercoating material itself ranges greatly in heat tolerance.
From "Most powders are manufacturer rated at 250-300 degree operating temperatures."
In comparison, G2 Caliper paint is rated at 980 degrees tolerance.

"It is not uncommon to have caliper temperatures exceed 200 F" - Michael Romano, Mechanical Engineer (Source)

Not stating it is a problem for all people, but rather it could be a problem for some people.
