* Korlux™ is rated for applications with continuous ambient temperatures up to 150°F. Korlux™ can withstand direct contact conditions up to 365°F; however some common adhesives may not withstand this extreme temperature. BES recommends a maximum temperature of 250°F for any objects that come into contact with the Korlux™ surface.
