The effect of the rolling temperature on the deformation texture and the perfection degree of a cube texture in pure-nickel thin tape were investigated. The kinetics of primary recrystallization was studied on samples that had undergone rolling at different temperatures and the temperature of the onset of secondary recrystallization was determined. Regularities of the structure formation in the samples are discussed. It is established that the cube texture with the maximum sharpness is produced in the samples rolled at room temperature.
