POLEMA, a powder metallurgy plant, is one of the world's leading manufacturers of products made of chrome, molybdenum, tungsten, metal powders and composites.

At the plant, powder metallurgy is based on the following technology processes: obtaining metals in the form of powders, compacting these powders into products of various shapes using cold and hot isostatic pressing techniques, hydrogen or vacuum sintering, pressure shaping (rolling, forging, extrusion), spraying and flame plating.

Among powder metallurgy enterprises, the company holds leading positions in the international markets of electrolytic refined chrome and sprayed high purity chrome targets, rolled products, molybdenum and tungsten products, high-current contact materials, heavy tungsten alloys. Since 1982, one of the Russia’s largest metal powder manufacturing complexes with the capacity of 3,000 t per year has operated as a constituent of the enterprise.

Established in 1961, POLEMA was acquired by Managing Company “Industrial Metallurgical Holding”in 2004 and successfully fulfils various projects for reconstruction of electrolytic chrome production, mechanical metal-working, production of new materials and expansion of production of base materials made of chrome, molybdenum, tungsten, nickel, nichrome, aluminum titanium compositions and ceramics for physical vapor deposition technologies (PVD), reinforcing, protective, decorative, light-reflecting, resistive, switching and transparent electrically conductive films and coatings.

The volume of production of high-purity chrome sprayed targets and evaporable cathodes reaches 30% of the global market. The company sells its products in the domestic market, China, Taiwan, Korea and covers all key markets of the world in 30 countries: USA, EEC countries, South America and Southeast Asia. It has representative offices in Europe and Southeast Asia.

Modern analytical equipment, including optical emission and mass spectrometers, Leco system instruments, Jeol electron microscope, machines for mechanical testing of metals, etc., guarantees excellent quality control of our products. In production of main types of products, POLEMA uses the ISO 9001:2015 quality management system confirmed by an international certificate.
