Polypropylene CD cases

From: Heather Gray <hgray>

We are evaluating CD cases for storage of our digital image CD-Rs.
Recently, I came across some Internet articles regarding the "Disc
Saver" CD case, made out of polypropylene, not polystyrene like
regular thin jewel cases.  This particular case is made by Stomp,
Inc. <URL:http://www.stompinc.com/>

Does anyone know if polypropylene plastic is approved for archival
use? Also, does anyone have personal experiences with them who can
give me their thoughts on the durability of these cases?
