When Scotty finishes cutting through the bulkhead in order to regain entry to Engineering, the piece he cut out is very hot and in fact is smoking, but Scotty grabs it with his bare hands to remove it and yet doesn't get burned. Update: Note that Scotty grabs the cut panel at the bottom-right, where he had cut it much earlier. The panel was only smoking from the top, where he had just finished cutting it. The panel would have had time to cool at the bottom-right by the time he grabbed it. And, given the location of the cut panel, and the equipment behind it, the material used in the bulkhead would almost certainly have properties that would insulate the crew from any heat generated by the equipment behind the panel, so the cut piece would have been cool enough to handle.
