Use of polypropylene video cases

On this Friday the 13th afternoon, I need to tap your collective
knowledge regarding the use of non-acidic video cases for both cassettes
and DVD? Our preservationist suggested we change to polypropylene cases.
Does anyone have any information or experience with this?
I've not found anything to support changing cases, nor did we receive any
comments when this question was posted on the archivist database. Will
polypropylene cases really extend the life of a video ! ?
TIA, Jane
