Product Details

BEHR ULTRA SCUFF DEFENSE Stain-Blocking Paint and Primer* is an interior paint that's too tough to scuff and sets a new standard for paint durability. BEHR ULTRA SCUFF DEFENSE features breakthrough innovation to deliver a rich finish that is truly durable enough for high-traffic areas. This soft eggshell sheen creates a velvety appearance that's easy to clean and stands up to scrubbing. Don't settle or compromise between the look you desire and higher level of durability you require. *A PRIMER COAT MAY BE NEEDED ON SOME SURFACES. SEE BACK LABEL FOR DETAILS.
  • Ideal for busy high traffic areas, family rooms, living rooms, dining rooms, bedrooms, kids’ rooms and hallways
  • Eggshell sheen offers a soft velvety appearance
  • Excellent hide; 1 gallon covers up to 400 sq. ft. depending on application, color and surface porosity
  • For best application, use a high quality 3/8 in. - 1/2 in. nap roller cover, nylon/polyester brush or airless sprayer (0.015 in. - 0.019 in. spray tip, 60 mesh filter)
  • Use BEHR ULTRA SCUFF DEFENSE Paint as a primer for properly prepared uncoated or painted interior surfaces, including woods that contain tannins (2 primer coats required for redwood and cedar) and heavily stained areas
  • Lock in stains with BEHR ULTRA SCUFF DEFENSE Paint as a spot primer, for heavy stains, test for stain bleed-through by applying BEHR ULTRA SCUFF DEFENSE Paint to a small section, if stain bleeds through, spot prime another coat to the stained area and test again before top coating, if bleeding continues, a longer dry time is needed before top coating
  • Apply when air and surface temperatures are between 50°F-90°F (10°C-32°C), darker colors may require additional dry time between coats, cooler temperatures or higher humidity may prolong drying time
  • The true benefit is an eggshell finish appearance with scuff resistance of a gloss, a combination not typical in traditional lower sheen paints

Q:how washable is this paint

1 Answer
Answer This Question

A:  Hi sue, thank you for your question. We appreciate your interest in our products. Our Ultra paint offers great scrubbability and superior durability. The slight gloss in our eggshell sheen also helps, as higher sheens are typically more resistant to staining and cleaning. We hope this information helps. Happy painting, and best of luck with your project. Have a great day. -Joanna

    Made our house feel like a home
    [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I'm so glad we went with Behr Scuff Defense to paint our house. It made a huge difference in our house and was so easy to work with. We needed paint that was durable enough for kids and pets, didn't break the bank, and didn't cause terrible off gassing. This paint was perfect!

      Great Coverage
      [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I’m currently renovating and have used Behr Scuff Defense on all interior walls. The coverage is great with one coat. The color is true to the swatches I choose. Extremely happy with this product. The colors are Sandstone Cliff and Camouflage Jungle.

        Covers Well
        [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] This paint covers the walls well and can easily be done with one coat. The walls can be washed as needed requiring less frequent painting.
          Amazing paint product all around
          [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I e always been a Sherwin Williams person until I went to Home Depot for a color match to finish a paint project for a friend.. learning the details of Behr Ultra interior and exterior paint line was amazing.. the additives in the product for the price It's a steal.. definitely shopping for my personal paint projects at Home Depot now instead of paying the prices at Sherwin Williams store.. Behr Ultra is my #1 personal favorite paint grade.. even the regular flat product amazes me.. with the paint hardener in the formula it's durable enough to wash without having to get eggshell finish.. absolutely just love this product all around..

            Love It!
            [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] This was the first time we used the scuff defense. It went on so smooth and covered so nicely with only one coat. I even used it on my wood doors by mistake and one coat did the trick. I will definitely but again. Keep the product as is.

              Favorite paint ever!!
              [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I spent a month completing this project and am absolutely inlove with how it turned out. I never have any issues with Behr when it comes to cleaning the walls, scuffs, nor does the color fade over time. I have 3 dogs & 3 cats so havig a durable paint is important for me. The self-leveling feature is extra nice in those hard to reach areas. I have used other brands before but always come back to Behr, I am always recommending them to friends and family.

                Excellent Coverage and Durability
                [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I used this on my kitchen walls. I had to go over a semi gloss that who only knows how old it was. I am so pleased with the outcome. I am a Behr paint person for life. I used Adirondack Blue

                  [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] Regardless of any claims by any paint manufacturer, I have NEVER painted a wall in one coat EVER, until this paint. I was preparing myself for double the work by having to paint two coats, and I was amazed that it covered perfectly in one coat. I am a happy man !!!!

                      Great scuff defense
                      [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] We recently moved into a house and I’ve been slowly painting every room. We have two kids and two dogs, so far the scuff defense has lived up to our families needs. The paint had great coverage and was easy to touch up and apply second coats as needed.
