In addition to being titanium stabilized, stainless steel 321/321H plates and sheets offer good mechanical properties and are extremely durable. In the range of temperatures where the stainless steel is exposed to chromium carbide, it is exceptionally corrosion resistant and also very resistant to intergranular corrosion. Furthermore, they possess a high creep and stress rupture properties compared to other alloys. Additionally, stainless steel 321/321H plates exhibit excellent low temperature toughness as well as a high level of strength. A 321H plate is an aluminum plate which can also be used in diluted organic acids at medium temperatures. It also has other features such as high tensile strength, durability, precise design, and many more, that contribute to its success.
In addition to the excellent resistance to intergranular corrosion that alloy 321 (UNS S32100) provides as a key advantage following exposure to temperatures in the chromium carbide precipitation range of 800 to 1500°F (427 to 816°C), it is also a stabilized stainless steel plate. It is added to alloy 321 stainless steel plates that is made of titanium to prevent the formation of chromium carbides.
In addition to its excellent mechanical properties, alloy 321 stainless steel plate is also suitable for high temperatures. In addition to offering a higher creep and stress rupture resistance than Alloy 304 and, particularly, Alloy 304L, alloy 321 stainless steel plate may be suitable for exposures involving sensitization and intergranular corrosion.

The alloy 321 (UNS S32100) has very good corrosion resistance due to its titanium stabilized austenitic structure. Having been exposed to temperatures in the chromium carbide precipitation range of 800 to 1500°F (427 to 816°C) it has excellent resistance to intergranular corrosion. This alloy exhibits excellent resistance to oxidation up to 1500°F (816°C) and has higher creep and stress rupture properties than alloys 304 and 304L, as well as being more resistant to corrosion at low temperatures.
The 321H stainless steel plate (UNS S 32109) has a higher carbon content (0.04 – 0.10). Due to its increased creep resistance and strength at temperatures over 1000oF (537°C), it is able to be dual certified in most instances.
There are various advantages of stainless Stainless strructures steel plate alloy 321 ss plate cannot be hardened by heat treatment, it can only be hardened by cold working. It can be welded and processed by standard fabrication practices.
