Pure copper was deformed in two different ways between 70%-95% and subsequently primary recrystallized. With the help of ODF-analysis the deformation and recrystallization textures for the different deformation degrees were determined. Noticeable differences were observed in both the deformation and recrystallization textures of the strips produced by these two deformation modes. For deformation texture the rolled strip shows stronger C- and S-, but weaker B-orientation in comparison with channel-die compressed strips. Also the orientation scattering is larger in the rolled strips. For the recrystallized specimen the Cube is stronger and the twin orientation is weaker than in the channel-die compressed strip. These observed differences are all more prominent at higher reductions. The causes of this differences will be discussed.
