Melt-Down

Has anyone found the melt-down level for different 35mm stocks?

The Film manufacturers probably have that info and movie theaters sometimes
test the meltdown when the film breaks but it's got to be over 700 degrees
Fahrenheit. More light means More Heat unless you have a cold light source
(Filtered for no Ifrared and UV). Some of the big projectors use a water
cooled heat sink to dissipate the heat. I don't think heat from thre light
source is a problem in a telecine.
