The development has been analysed of the primary recrystallisation texture in samples of polycrystalline nickel rolled to various degrees of reduction. A great similarity between the texture characteristics of copper and nickel has been found. Regularities of cube texture development were established and compared with results of texture and microstructure investigations obtained by other authors.
