Some colors have a “hue” designation at the end of their name as in Cadmium Red Medium Hue. When used in this way, hue is not a color attribute but rather a replacement or alternate for a target color. The “hue” colors many times yield higher intensities at a lower cost for pigments that are either unavailable, expensive or fugitive (not lightfast) or pose possible health hazards
