Al-Mn alloys containing similar amounts of solutes but various dispersoid densities were cold rolled. The grain subdivision and micro-texture were examined by electron backscatter diffraction and orientation imaging microscopy. Macro-texture was measured by X-ray diffraction. It is found that a high density of fine dispersoids enhances the development of the copper and S textures at large strains (∼3), and also induces a higher fraction of high-angle grain boundaries. At smaller strains, the texture and high-angle grain boundaries are not evidently influenced by the density of dispersoids. It is suggested that the texture evolution, which is enhanced by dispersoid pinning effect, contributes to the grain subdivision and the formation of high-angle grain boundaries.
