Dyed window films these days
are not used around here much any more. We try to keep up with the
proven best films that come out as time rolls on, all while keeping an
eye on the new film cost. While still available and costs less, the
newer advancements in film technology these days performs way better.
However any film still aids:
Aids cars with weak air conditioners (Helps them cool down
better & faster).

The latest films give much
more heat blockage than dyed films do. For example, the 35% darkness in
a dyed film which is the darkest legal film you can use on restricted
windows here in Texas will give you around a 36% total solar energy
rejection (TSER). The darker you go the more energy is filtered out.
Looking at the darkest dyed
film made which is 5% (limo), the total solar energy rejection (TSER) is
at around 46% total rejection. Back in the day when dyed film was mostly
the only thing available, these numbers were huge compared to just
Now days, with the better
technology in films, our 35% film, which looks the same, lasts longer,
and is way more color stable over the years, gives you 53% total solar
energy rejection (TSER). Yes that's right, it gives you more solar
blockage than a 5% limo film in the old school dyed film. Plus it's
legal on restricted windows here in Texas. It costs more which in turn
causes the cost of the job to increase a bit BUT is worth it compared to
the slight increase in price. Think about that when it's a hundred
degrees out side.....
We don't stock dyed film
anymore because it sits on the shelf and never gets used. People would
come in being attracted to the lower cost and then when they get here,
come to understand what is mentioned above, then go ahead and spend the
extra to get the increased heat blockage and never look back. If you
have to have dyed film, we can still get it usually within 24 hours but
honestly, we'd recommend going ahead and spending the extra fifty bucks
or so and just go with the higher end film on your car... You'd be much
happier and glad you did.
