The deep drawability of commercial purity aluminium sheets is improved by introducing a (in fcc materials rather unusual) {111} fibre texture in the sheet surface layers. An additional step of warm rolling after the conventional hot and cold rolling leads to the formation of a pronounced shear texture in the sheet surface layers. During the final recrystallisation annealing, the desired {111} texture prevails at the expense of the other shear texture components. The present paper aims to clarify the mechanisms of the formation of {111}∥ND orientations during both warm rolling and recrystallisation. The effect of the {111} surface texture on the plastic anisotropy of the resulting sheets is discussed.
