Here is a quote form winchline.com - "The Viking Fire Line is made from Samson's Tec-12 (Technora Aramid Fiber) with Critical temperature of 450º F and melting or char point at 900º F, you will never have to worry about melting this line to your winch drum. "
I'm not sure what the melt point of the standard Amsteel Blue is though.
