We are asked all the time - Why do glazing bead colors vary? .. or change? .. from time to time?
 
The vinyls and plastics used in the manufacturing of window and door glazing bead change from supliers and manufacdtureres - there is no industry standard except in maybe black or white colors. A dye lot coloration is only the exact same in that vat at that time. Paint and dye manufacturers assign each lot a unique identification number and slight differences in temperature, dyeing time, and other factors can result in different shades of the same color between different dye lots of otherwise identical production.
Resins, solvents and other industrial products hold together the pigment in suspension, provides surface adhesion and determines the quality and durability of a product. The pigment is in a powder form  much like concrete, and the average aftermarket paint color system includes numerous colors or toners to mix in various formulas from different suppliers. Theory vs Chemical Reaction .. The colors are mixed to exact specifications and all coloras from that lot will be exactly the same even after sunlight, drying and ultraviolet exposure.  However, if the same formula is followed at another temperature or humidity on another day, that lot of colors can be a different shade and sometimes in some of the related colors it can be another color altogether.  Therefore, we usually tend to talk of colors in a "range" from one bead to another is not going to match perfectly .. but will be within that range of colors .. when application is finished or installed - and not really noticeable.
