About Paradigm Shift
Paradigm Shift Technologies Inc. was founded in 1995. Over the past years the company has supplied clients with leading edge research, development, engineering, and consulting services, specializing in coatings and surface modifications.
ECHA’s Committee for Socioeconomic Assessment (SEAC) recognized EPVD® as an alternative to hazardous Cr plating in gun barrels. The European Chemicals Agency (ECHA) is an agency of the European Union working for the safe use of chemicals. This pivotal recognition marks a positive stride forward for the future of the EPVD® technology and its impact on both the industry and the environment.
Results of the EPVD® Gun Barrel Technology global commercialization activities were presented at the 36th JSF (F-35) ESWG meeting in the Netherlands.
JSF (F-35) is the world’s largest military program.

Receives a contract from Manoir Industries in support of the EPVD® technology with the new CoatAlloy coating for Petro-chemical high-temperature applications.
We specialize in providing professional, industry leading and custom-built engineering and advanced material solutions for a variety of applications. Our state-of-the-art research and development facility is an integral part of our business. Our proprietary and patented Electro-magnetically enhanced Physical Vapor Deposition (EPVD®) process is the world’s only coating technology for critical defense and industrial applications.
Hexavalent Chromium is a carcinogenic substance banned globally. When applied to gun barrels Cr plating has critical limitations affecting performance and life expectancy, including: Erosion, fatigue, accuracy and maintenance downtime.
A brand new line of uniquely-engineered weight-conscience coating alloys is set to further improve performance and reduce the weight of Gun Systems. EPVD®-Air is projected to reduce the weight of Military Aircrafts significantly; notably lowering operational costs, and introducing potential savings in the billions of dollars.
