The deformation texture of a Ni-40 wt. percent Co alloy has been found to be of neither the pure metal nor the alloy type. On annealing, an almost random texture is produced in this alloy in the fullyrecrystallized condition. During the grain growth stage, a weak cube component develops which does not show much of a variation even after prolonged annealing.
