Maximum Safe Temperature When Melting Damar Resin

I was able to find the melting point for Damar Resin, but what is the temperature at which damage might be done to the resin when heating it up to mix with beeswax?

I always melt the Damar first so as not to over heat the beeswax when combining them and I don't want to get it too hot.

I melt a small amount of wax first then add the damar, when it is melted in, slowly, I add more hot liquid wax and continue with a slow melt, stirring often. I often put this in a slow cooker and cook overnight. This way I am assured it will not burn and I can watch over the first melt carefully. Hope this helps

For some reason, when mixing Damar Resin with wax, a very hard resin similar to caramel, which I am forced to discard, comes off. What is it?
