The evolution of texture was investigated using silver samples processed by equal-channel angular pressing for different numbers of passes and stored at room temperature for up to 4 months. For 1 and 4 passes, only a slight texture intensity change was detected during storage. For 8 and 16 passes, there was a weakening of components A* and Cθ and the development of a strong A* component due to significant recrystallization in the severely deformed samples.
