Chemical plating is one of the metallising treatment processes for fibrous materials that can produce unique textile properties. It poses a great potential for textile products in application aspects including functional and decorative effects. This study has investigated the operation condition and resultant performance of using chemical silver plating on polyester fabric. The silver-plated polyester fabric exhibited a specific protective function and novel appearance if optimum chemical plating condition was chosen. Furthermore, the fabric design practice employed by this chemical technique with design approach had achieved the diverse effects.
