In the present paper texture changes of pure copper during and after a single pass of simple shear extrusion (SSE) was studied. For this reason, the samples were taken out from an SSE die during the process and investigated by electron back-scattering diffraction (EBSD). From the beginning to the middle of the deformation channel, the simple shear textures were formed gradually and the strongest one was observed on the 0.5 pass sample. The degree of the simple shear textures decreases with the distance from the middle plane where the shear is reversed, but the simple shear textures are still the major components after the exit of the channel. The major orientation component of the 0.5 pass sample was C component, whereas, it was A2* component of the 1 pass sample.
