For production of pure aluminum capacitor foils, it is essential to develop a cube texture in the thin foil. This letter presents a detection of layers containing high density of cube oriented grains in an aluminum sheet of 500 μm thickness, annealed at 300°C. The cube oriented grains formed during an intermediate annealing, probably contribute to the highly--developed cube texture through an additional process. Distribution of the crystallographic orientation in inhomogeneous textures of a transverse section were studied by electron back scatter diffraction pattern measurements.
