It's a great product but Id refrain from using it on products used in inhalation and stick with using it for car repair. Could you not have built up a small layer of foil where the chip is so that it evens out? saving 12$ on a new bowl is not worth the risk of inhaling burning epoxy IMO.
their web site says 500*f constant 600*f for up to 10 mins and with paper burning at 451 i would bet that the coals around at least that much seeing as paper is wood
