Hmm. I wont answer your question exactly, but I believe it will coke.  
As to "totally impervious" - no.
It has a listed flash point, and if it does turn to coke, which I 
believe it will (its still carbon based oil), then it is just a delayed 
reaction, at a temp you are far less likely to ever reach.  Read ed 
hackett's article.  Its ancient, btu still the best.
