What temperature does agar agar set at?

In the Modernist Ingredients and Equipment Forum
I want to make some gels but I wasn't sure what temperature agar sets at. Any ideas? Thanks

Agar tends to set around 40-45°C / 104-113°F. Once it is set it can then be heated up to 80°C / 175°F before it melts again.

Hope that helps!
