    Yes... and the high temp engine paint I have on my calipers is rated
    to 500 degrees.

At one of our local racing club events, I put some temperature sensitive
paint on my rotor edges and calipers.  After about a 10 minute session on
the track, the paint indicated about 850 degress for the outer edge of the
rotor on my Triumph Spitfire, and about 650 degrees for the caliper.  So
brakes can get hot enough to melt powder coating, I would say.
