Type 321 (UNS S32100) is an austenitic flat rolled coil stainless steel that has fives times more titanium than carbon in its content. The increased titanium level aids in preventing carbide precipitation during welding. As a result, Type 321 is both creep resistant and resistant to oxidation.
321 stainless steel flat rolled coil is generally used in applications that require sustainability to high intermittent temperatures.

321 rolled coil stainless steel is generally non-magnetic.
Type 321 can be easily formed and drawn, but it may require re-annealing after forming and drawing.
