  1. Bad Samples.
    Physical samples may be produced incorrectly or damaged due to wear and tear.
  2. Optical Brighteners.
    These chemicals added to materials for that “whiter than white” look can cause measurement errors.
  3. Metamerism.
    Are you sure your product appears the way you want under all of the lighting types it will encounter out in the world?
  4. Unknown Characteristics. 
    s your sample flat or curved? Translucent or opaque? Wet or dry? All of these factors can cause inaccurate measurement data, and even temperature can play a role.
  5. Lack of Consistent Operating Procedures. 
    If everyone is not speaking the same color language or performing color measurements in the same way, inconsistencies will occur.
