IC package epoxy max temperature?

Does anyone know, what is the maximum temperature that plastic packages of ICs can withstand? Ignoring the die. I tried heating it to 350 deg.C for a few minutes. It smells, but without noticeable degradation.

I have machined a part for 3d printer extruder from an IC package, and I wonder, how long will it last. The extruder goes up to 300 deg.C, and my usual printing temperature is 230 deg.C.
