Before making your purchase, here is an overview of dichroic window films to guide you.
Window Film Dichroic – Category Overview
So you love the look of coloured window glass, but you don?t want to change your actual windows. In that case, allow us to introduce you to dichroic window film!
As an extremely captivating style of window film, dichroic film mimics the same effects found in dichroic glass. Our window films will sit completely flat against your glass, giving you a dazzling array of colours and patterns to choose from.
By using a dichroic window film, your chosen glass or window effect can be applied or removed as it suits, allowing you to gain privacy and style in one easy move.
What Are Dichroic Window Films?
As noted above, dichroic window films are based on dichroic glass. Also known as living glass or rainbow glass, dichroic glass gives an iridescent colour effect and has semi-transparent properties.
In other words, dichroic glass and the effects found in our window films are colour-changing.
Specifically, the colours of the window film will change depending on your position in the room.
The word ?dichroic? actually originates from the Greek words for two (di) and colour (chroma).
Just like with the real glass, several colours can be found within any dichroic window film style creating an optical spectacle that packs in plenty of personality.
Types Of Dichroic Patterns For Window Films
- Aurora transparent
- Chromatic dichroic
- Citrus transparent
- Orchid transparent
- Spectrum Transparent
How Do Dichroic Effects Help Achieve Privacy In Window Films?
Some of our dichroic films are categorised in our ?high? privacy rating, meaning they allow light through but not prying eyes. Some examples include SXD-4260 Dicroescalas y SXD-4240 Piedras Dicroicas.
You?ll notice how these styles have an iridescent finish, but also contain textured patterns to reduce the level of visibility through to the other side of the glass.
In other cases, dichroic window film can let lots of light through, meaning the aim is to achieve an interesting light effect over privacy. With so many styles to choose from here at Glass Films, you can choose exactly the right window film for your needs!

Perhaps you have a room that?s super plain. Why not add some colourful window film to the windows or glass surfaces to instantly change that?

What Does Dichroic Film Do?
When applied to a glass surface, dichroic film creates a mesmerising blend of colour changes within the room, wherever the light happens to catch the film. As well as adding colour to your space, dichroic film can also enhance the level of privacy.
What Are The Different Types Of Dichroic Film?
Glass Films stocks 13 styles within our dichroic film range. This includes Aurora transparent, Chromatic dichroic, Citrus transparent, DichroDots, DichroFrost, DichroGeo, DichroGlitter, DichroScales, DichroShards, DichroSquares, DichroStones, Orchid transparent and Spectrum Transparent.
Each of these span effects such as sparkle, glitter, holographic, prismatic and mosaic, making it possible to truly personalise your project.
Why Is Dichroic Glass So Expensive?
Dichroic glass is costly to produce because getting the colour-changing effects involves a challenging process. Namely, the use of quartz crystal and metal oxides, which are vaporised with an electric beam. In addition, only a small number of dichroic glass manufacturers exist.
However, when you opt for window film instead, you can still achieve those same colour-changing effects (and even other special effects such as glitter!) all without the expense. In fact, you don?t even have to replace your windows either, which further reduces the cost.
Does Dichroic Glass Change Colour?
Depending on your position in the room, dichroic glass (and dichroic window film) will indeed appear to change colour. This is all down to a stunning optical illusion all things dichroic glass, bulbs or window film give. So, if you?re in search of an ultra-creative look for any room or glass surface, then dichroic film is just the ticket.
Does Rainbow Window Film Come Off?
Yes! All of our window films are designed to be easily applied and removed as necessary. However, do be aware that you?ll need to apply new window film onto your glass rather than re-use any film you have removed.
Is Iridescent Window Film Expensive?
Not if you shop here at Glass Films! We have a stunning range of iridescent window film effects including at some very affordable price points. Of course, another way to keep your project within budget is to only cover select glass surfaces within your home or commercial location.
What Colour Goes With Anthracite Grey Windows?
While this question often relates to other areas of your property such as your rendering or front door, it?s always worth considering colouring pairings for the window glass itself.
Similar to a white window frame, anthracite grey windows give you a blank canvas to be able to apply any colour. Dichroic window films are no exception, as they will allow the stunning array of colours to really pop against the darker window frame.
However, if you?re in search of privacy window film or any other style of window film, you?ll also find these on our website.
