The comparison of texture and planar anisotropy of the r-value between the lean Type 32101 (21.2%Cr-1.5%Ni-5.0%Mn-0.3%Mo-0.02%C-0.22%N) and standard Type 329J4L (25.2%Cr-6.9%Ni-0.7%Mn-3.0%Mo-0.02%C-0.11%N) duplex stainless steel cold-rolled and annealed sheets were examined. Type 32101 had a weaker texture, especially in the α phase, and a lower planar anisotropy of the r-value compared with Type 329J4L. These differences were caused by the cold rolling texture because the αbcc fiber (<011>//RD) texture in Type 32101 decreased during cold rolling. It was revealed that during cold rolling, inhomogeneous deformation easily occurred in Type 32101 because this steel contained a higher volume fraction of the γ phase harder than the α phase.
