silanization of polypropylene

For some time now, we have been silanizing polypropylene tubes.
However, I've begun to wonder why (you'll note that it's been
a while since "I've done the experiment"). I know that when you
silanize glass, the silane binds to exposed hydroxyl groups on
the glass. However, there should be no such groups on polypropylene --
the polymer should be quite inert.
Any comments would be appreciated.
