Default West Systems Epoxy Resin

Does anyone know what approximate maximum temperature West System 105 Resin/206 hardener can withstand after full cure?

I have put small parts in my home oven for post cure (I use the west system 105 resin). The lowest setting on my oven is 170 and I have left parts in there for hours with no ill effects.

West System customer service is 866-937-8797. I spoke to a rep and was told that 200 degrees is not a problem. It can withstand temps up to 400 degrees but will start to soften at the higher temperatures.
