Disk Brake Heating Up

I'm riding with a Shimano BL-M445/7L Disc Brake from UDC. It's heating up on some longer/steeper hills (10% to 13% grade for ~1/2 mile) to the point that the disk gets warped and starts to rub on the caliper. About 10 minutes after the hill, the disk will cool off and go back to being flat enough that the rubbing stops.

Is this OK? Will I eventually ruin this brake?

Thanks!
