Dyed films are the most are the most economical and cheapest way of reducing the amount of light that is entering the interior of a car. These films absorb translucence, create darkening and prevent UV rays from entering the interior of the car.

In comparison with the economic class films, these metal particles provide a gloss effect that prevents heat from entering inside the car. These films have a thicker structure, which is important in case the glass breaks, and have a thicker scratch-resistant layer. Metallic films will have a longer lifetime in the long run without changing their looks, meaning that they will not begin to fade before the end of manufacturer warranty period and will remain crystal-clear.
