BTG Labs is a cutting-edge materials science based company that delivers effective adhesion quality control for manufacturers who are concerned with adhesive bonding, painting, coating, printing, and cleaning.

BTG Labs equips manufacturers with the insight to reduce scrap, recalls and rework caused by adhesion failure. Our action-oriented Surface Lab services, coupled with fast, easy, accurate and non-destructive surface inspection products provide quantifiable, repeatable tests that produce results that will allow manufacturers to fix adhesion problems.

The BTG Labs Story

More than twenty years ago, BTG Labs began as a development lab for plasma polymerized coatings. Through research and development work led by Chief Scientist and CEO Dr. Giles Dillingham, BTG Labs made great strides in the field of material science and adhesives in manufacturing. It was during this time that BTG Labs developed the Surface Analyst, the first hand-held contact angle measurement device used in the development of adhesive bonding for the F-35 Joint Strike Fighter program.

As a solutions-focused company, BTG Labs has mastered the ability to ensure adhesion for manufacturers in an ever-growing array of industry applications. We’ve refined how research, design and production affect adhesion to help businesses create adhesion processes that result in quality products.

Through years of experience, our unparalleled products and our unique approach to fixing adhesion problems, we have helped some of the world’s largest companies build better products and develop reliable adhesion processes.
