Two interstitial-free steel samples were prepared by normal and by cross rolling. The effect of the resulting different deformation textures and microstructures on the subsequent recrystallization behavior was studied by micro-texture analysis. The differences in recrystallization textures of the two differently rolled samples can be attributed to the microstructural differences in the as-deformed state. The orientation distribution of the recrystallized grains forming at the early stages of the recrystallization dominated the final recrystallization textures, pointing to the importance of oriented nucleation in the formation of recrystallization textures of interstitial-free steels.
