Auction Description



1.1 Introduction

The Naval Surface Warfare Center Indian Head Explsive Ordnance Disposal Technology Division (NSWCIHEODTD) has been tasked by the Defense Logistics Agency to characterize available lots of HTPB.

1.2 Background

The HTPB prepolymers require unusually rigorous molecular weight characterization techniques to differentiate them. The HTPB lots will be sorted by molecular weight and characterized by multi-angle light scattering detection gel permeation chromatography (MALS GPC).


The Contractor shall obtain measurements on the HTPB polybutadiene lots which includes but is not limited to the following:

• Provide Wyatt Viscostar/DAWN HELEOS-II detection coupled with Waters Alliance HPLC System and appropriate software
• Collect molecular weight distributions and hydrodynamic radii (if appropriate) on ‘good’ and ‘bad’ lots of current Cray Valley and Mach I lots of HTPB
• Support analysis of the experimental results


The Contractor shall work with the Government Technical Point of Contact (TPOC) to prepare a final characterization report to guide formulation of current lots of HTPB and focus future characterization efforts, in accordance with CDRL A001. All deliverable documentation as specified herein shall be inspected and approved by the TPOP. This publication shall not be released to the public without prior NSWCIHEODTD approval.

The period of performance shall not exceed nine (9) months after award of the contract.

"When we had a need to add additional capacity to our product certification team the service we chose was Name Your Test Price. They assisted in the scoping of the work, they located a lab that could provide the quickest turnaround time and liaised with the lab to help define our expectations. Name Your Test Price response to questions was extremely quick and their insight on laboratory procedures was excellent. I plan to use Name Your Test Price again in the future."

"I was searching for labs in the States who tested consumer products. I was unsure of where to go and how to get started. So many labs! The field was vast and overwhelming. I spoke to and they understood what I needed and made excellent suggestions and provided me with helpful contacts. Thanks Name Your Test Price!"

-Maggie Gilmour, Researcher, Discovery Channel - Toronto Ontario

"When we had a need to conduct some external testing, we started by contacting local testing labs and got quotes of $500 per sample. Then we found testing partners and they were able to get the job done for $200 per sample, saving us thousands! We have been working with them for our external testing and certification needs ever since."
