Poor adhesion of silver plating on PMMA



1998

I would like to know which are currently the best practices to deposit silver onto a PMMA film. I think silver has a poor adhesion to PMMA and therefore some kind of pretreatment is required. Probably by using an interface layer of SiO2 adhesion could be enhanced. I would like to know also if this process is easier on PET.

Looking forward to hear any advice on the topic,

PMMA stands for PolyMethyl MethAcrylate and
PET for PolyEthylene Terephthalate

we are working on silver coatings on textiles. We have been working on two different fabrics, PET and nylon. PET has better adhesion than nylon (I am not sure about PMMA) ..we also did post treatment by coating some resin to improve the adhesion.
