A lot of times, if you run a piece of paper over a flame, it might turn a different color but it won’t catch fire. It’s only when you hold the paper near the flame for a couple of seconds that it ignites. But the longer you hold the paper near a flame, the more likely it suffers permanent damage instead of just looking a little toasty.

Also think about a popsicle. It doesn’t instantly turn to a puddle even on a very hot day. It takes a while for it to melt.

The electronic components are like that, too. The high heat will damage them *if it persists long enough*. The goal of the person doing the soldering is to try and minimize the amount of time heat is applied. The longer the component is heated, the more likely it suffers damage. If the person has difficulty with a part, they might have to back off and give it time to cool before continuing.

They *can* be burned. But a person who works with skill will move quickly enough it doesn’t happen.
