T-Fal Forms

I just found a T-Fal coated cooking utensil that would make a great slumping mold if safe. I read a generalized MSDS on T-Fal which did not address what happens in temperatures greater than 350F. While sandblasting the item is probably what I'll do to remove the coating, I do wonder about the consequence of firing T-Fal in a kiln. Anyone have any info?

The teflon will burn off in the kiln and the byproducts of decomposition are probably pretty nasty.
I would be very hesitant to put T-fal in a kiln for fear of contamination or element damage and I sure as hell wouldn't do it unless the kiln was outdoors or extremely well ventilated tot he outside world.

I think I'd sandblast all the teflon off if I really wanted to use it.

I didn't bother to find out what the metal is.

Don't.
