Many energy efficient films are composed of Polyester sheets (most of us call it plastic) on which through different methods manufacturers apply invisible or almost invisible layers and coats containing particles of reflective material (may be silver or another) and also materials that absorb these rays from the sun. Each manufacturer has their own technologies: the trend is to keep 100% of these rays from passing through the film and consequently through the glass in your window.
