New Year, New Life!
Celebrating its 30th anniversary in 2022, Polar is one of the main suppliers to the offshore industry in Brazil, taking another step up after its internationalization in 2017. It recently acquired from Eaton all of Blinda’s tooling, machinery and equipment manufacturing rights , one of the main Brazilian Ex “d” industries, over the last 60 years.
Polar’s new management model comprises the division of its operations into three Business Units. They are Polar Distribution, Polar International and Indústrias Blinda, with the objective of ensuring that each one of them has adequate management and focus.
Polar Distribution is responsible for all Brazilian branches, dedicated to stocking and distributing product lines.
Polar International, based in London/UK, is the best choice for customers who prefer to handle the import process on their own, but can still rely on Polar’s national experience.
Indústria Blinda has been recognized since 1962 for its high quality Ex “d” (explosion-proof) equipment offering, including Crouse Hinds CEAG panels, push buttons, junction boxes and “Engineered” control units to Order” (ETO), which are part of Eaton’s CAP (Certified Assembly Partner) technology transfer program to Polar.
With the implementation of this new business model, Grupo Polar Components is already benefiting from the synergy between its Business Units to offer its customers the very best.

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.
