Our Staff

Tom Charlton


Tom opened Electronic Coating Technologies in 1997 to bring to the electronics market a company whose staff would bring many years in expertise in conformal coatings, potting compounds gaskets, adhesives and equipment. His vision was to offer a service to help small to large sub contract assembly houses, OEM’s and other manufacturers deal with the complex issues of applying chemical compounds to assemblies in a safe, environmentally responsible and repeatable way.

Tom has 30 years experience in the industry. This includes owning a large multi-line adhesive and coatings distributorship which included the engineered selling of products from such brand names as Dymax, Dow Corning Silicones, Emerson and Cuming, Biwax Corporation, Devcon, Pacer, Plexus and equipment from PVA, Sealant Equipment and Engineering, EFD and Knodle GBH.

This material and equipment background has allowed Tom to develop a deep understanding of the processes and difficulties encountered using these materials.
