the email engine incorrectly translated wikipedia data - the temperatures are
200C or 390F NOT as you received as 2000 and 3900
from wikipedia
When a thermoset powder is exposed to elevated
temperature, it begins to
 melt, flows out, and then chemically reacts to form a higher molecular
weight polymer
 in a network-like structure. This cure process, called crosslinking,
requires a certain temperature for a certain length of time in order to
reach full cure and establish the full film properties for which the
material was designed. Normally the powders cure at 2000C (3900F) for 10

Suggested annual donation  $16.00
