Polar concludes the purchase of Blinda brand and offers a portfolio of solutions for explosive atmospheres
The businessman Emerson Rodrigues Esteves, who was ahead of negotiations with Eaton Corporation for the purchase of Blinda, of all its tools and machinery, has just announced that the last stage of the rights section of the brand was concluded and Polar Componentes Brasil is officially the brand’s owner.
Blinda, 60 years in the domestic market, now under the direction of Polar Components Group, resumes the manufacture of equipment Ex explosion proof as junction boxes, passage/distribution boxes, junction boxes, grounding systems, sirens, manufactured with copper-free aluminum, which is totally free of impurities. The Ex equipment with increased safety (Ex e) or with protection by enclosure (Ex t) as command buttons, control units, junction boxes and distribution panels, are manufactured in fibreglass reinforced polyester or stainless steel, with 1st line components, imported from Germany.
Dedicated component stock is available for manufacture and assembly, including for customised projects. The list of products manufactured by Blinda for hazardous areas is extensive and is duly certified or in final phase of certification by independent bodies, accredited by Inmetro.

Emerson also reports that the acquisition of Blinda is aligned with Polar’s business plan, which is increasing its product portfolio for hazardous areas, either from its own brand Blinda or from the best global manufacturers.

Product Specialists for Hazardous Areas
Don’t put your workplace, your life or that of your colleagues at risk. Environments where combustible gases or dust are part of the process may be subject to explosions, resulting in incalculable damage to life and property.
In a Classified Area, only electrical products that have been designed, built, tested and certified in accordance with the Standards of the ABNT NBR 60079 series can be installed. The use of non-approved devices is prohibited and has serious consequences, as it introduces the risk of sources of ignition within the Hazardous Area.
When purchasing your “Ex” products, require them to be accompanied by their respective Certificates of Conformity, issued by OCPs (Product Certification Body) accredited by INMETRO, and that the markings indicated on the certificates are applied to each of the products.
