O.V. Roman Powder Metallurgy Institute offers consumers foam-metal products in the form of blanks under a manufacturing agreement or the transfer of manufacturing technology under a license agreement and is looking for partners to conclude a distribution services agreement.
Pilot production of the State Scientific Institution "O.V. Roman Powder Metallurgy Institute" mastered the production of foam-metals in the form of sheet blanks with a maximum overall dimensions of 500x500x25 mm. At the request of the customer, foam metal can be cut to the required shape and size.

Material composition: nickel, copper, iron and alloys based on them (for open-cell); titanium, nickel, steel (for closed-cell).

Information about foam-metal products can be found here (in Russian).
