Abstract: Plasma gases of oxygen and argon were employed for pre-treating silk fabric before conducting electroless silver plating in this study. The effect of plasma pre-treatment with oxygen and argon gases on the electroless silver-plated silk fabric was investigated. Based on the observation of micro-structure using SEM, it was found that there was an increase in the amount of silver particles deposited on the silk fibre surface after plasma pre-treatment. The functional properties of plasmainduced electroless silver-plated silk fabrics were also evaluated. The increase in weight of the silver-plated silk after plasma pre-treatment was determined. When compared, the oxygen plasma treatment could improve the effect of silver plating on the silk fabric. Additionally, anti-static, anti-bacterial, UV protection and water-repellent properties of the silver-plated silk fabric were determined in this study.
