Get the stuff with a foil face on the inside. Mine will hold 200 degree with 1 bulb running, 250 with both. Easy bake oven for gun parts
PS mine is large enough for 2 rifle actions at one time plus small parts. Pull the tape and break it down when you don't need it. I started this because I do multi layer camo jobs and the mask can screw up an uncured first layer. Don't ask, I learned the hard way....
