Type 321 is a stabilized austenitic stainless steel, similar to type 304, but alloyed with titanium for use in applications involving continuous or intermittent service at 800-1500°F (427-816°C). 321 stainless has excellent resistance to oxidation and intergranular corrosion, while also possessing good creep strength compared to other 300 series stainless steels. The alloy is strengthened only through cold work and can be fabricated, machined, and welded via most conventional processes.
