POR 15 is not conductive, at least no where near enough to cause a short to ground that would burn wiring insulation, but not melt/burn the paint at the "short". The problem lies elsewhere IMHO.

BTW, the POR 15 (and any other finishes/paint) should be removed from beneath any grounds- you want metal to metal contact.
