Powder Metallurgy plant Polema, affiliated to Industrial Metallurgical Holding, headquartered in Moscow, Russia, produced its first first batch of titanium powder just over sixty years ago, on May 21, 1961. The plant originated as workshop #8 of the Novotulsky Metallurgical Plant, which, in the middle of the last century, became an experimental platform for the implementation of developments of the Central Research Institute of Ferrous Metallurgy.

The enterprise was reputedly one of the first in Russia to master the production of metal powders and products from heat-resistant alloys for the aerospace industry. Over time, the plant’s product line was supplemented with products made of high-purity chromium, tungsten, molybdenum, refractory and composite materials – all of which are in demand in the electronics, automotive, aircraft, shipbuilding and/or medical sectors.

In 2018, Polema began the production of high-alloy metal powders for surfacing, spraying and additive technologies. The newest equipment made it possible to expand the range of powders and improve quality.

The company continues to develop new products for various industries; this year, it began production of steel rollers for rolling mills and powders for Additive Manufacturing. Polema is said to be the first domestic producer of materials for AM.

Currently, Polema sells its products in Russia and twenty other countries. The company has its own representative offices in Europe and Asia.
