The changes in texture and microstructure that occur during superplastic deformation (SPD) of a suitably thermo-mechanically processed (TMP) Al alloy AA7010 containing Sc at a temperature and strain rate combination of 475°C, 1.9x10-2s-1 have been examined. It is observed that during the early stages of SPD, there is a significant increase in the Brass {110}<112> component as well as a considerable increase in the S {123}<634> component. Whilst, these components gradually decrease leading to the randomization of texture as the SPD process progresses to larger strains. These results are discussed in terms of the nature of the TMP together with significant variations in the number density of Al3ScxZr1-x dispersoids and percentage recrystallization with strain.
