Premium Plus is an excellent paint at a great value. Premium Plus is formulated to perform best when paired with BEHR primers. The primer, such as Behr's Interior Stain Blocking Primer and Sealer #75, will seal the surface so the topcoat is smooth and uniform, block stains and lock them in so they do not bleed through to the topcoat and provide great adhesion to the surface. Behr Premium Plus Paint finish is mildew resistant, durable, washable and applies easily.
Premium Plus Ultra is a Paint and Primer in One. The first difference is the topcoat- Premium Plus Ultra has a more advanced topcoat than Premium Plus. For instance, the paint film is tighter so it better protects against moisture and dirt. It has greater protection with its antimicrobial and mildew resistant paint film and is more resistant to scuffs.
Premium Plus Ultra also has excellent primer attributes such as sealing the surface and adhesion. In the majority of cases, a separate primer is not needed to complete your project so you can save yourself a step. Premium Plus Ultra also has an exclusive, sophisticated palette and the colors perform exceptionally well to give you fantastic results in fewer coats.
Both Premium Plus and Premium Plus Ultra are low VOC products.
In the next coming weeks, you may notice a new Premium Plus and Premium Plus Ultra on the shelf. Behr Premium Plus has a new plus... it is Self-Priming. This means that it will seal uncoated and previously painted surfaces without the need for a separate primer. The first coat seals the surface and subsequent coats provide uniform color and sheen. You will still need to use a Behr Primer over stained surfaces, and for the best adhesion to difficult surfaces such as glossy surfaces and metals. The new Premium Plus formula is also Zero VOC.
Premium Plus Ultra Paint and Primer and One has a new Stain-Blocking formula. We kept all of the superior features in Premium Plus Ultra Paint and Primer in One and added a new powerful stain blocker. The first coat of Ultra locks in the stain and subsequent coats provide excellent color and uniformity. The new formula is even suitable for medium to heavy stains!
