Effect of annealing on textures resulting from different modes of rolling deformation has been studied in pure Cu, Cu(Cr) and Cu(P) alloys with a view to obtain a very fine-grained microstructure and very weak texture. The annealing textures of differently rolled materials are dependent on the mode of rolling employed prior to heat treatment. A good combination of uniform fine-grained microstructure with weak texture has been achieved by annealing the multi-step cross-rolled materials.
