Scrims are temporary treatments that can be applied to Material surfaces for the purpose of making content on a surface less prominent. They help direct user attention to other parts of the screen, away from the surface receiving a scrim.
Scrims can be applied in a variety of ways, including:
- Darkening or lightening the surface and its content.
- Reducing the opacity of the surface and its content.
- Multiple surfaces on a screen at a time can display scrims.
- Scrims can appear at any elevation, whether in the foreground or background.
