1. A process for electrolessly metallizing a body to provide on the surface thereof a metal coating incorporating therein particulate matter which comprises contacting the surface of said body with an electroless metallizing bath comprising an aqueous solution of a metal salt, a reducing agent, a quantity of insoluble particulate matter and a quantity of particulate matter stabilizer, wherein said particulate matter stabilizer shifts the Zeta potential for said insoluble particulate matter by at least 10 mv in comparison to the measured Zeta potential of said insoluble particulate matter alone in water.
