  • Ideal for busy high traffic areas, family rooms, dining rooms, bedrooms and ceilings
  • Available in an EXTRA DURABLE FLAT SHEEN which provides a beautiful non-reflective appearance along with excellent touch-ups
  • 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

I didn’t know how to post an update
I’m Bella and Bambi, couldn’t figure out how to update. I decided to add photos to show what the camera picks up vs. what I see

    Behr ultra scuff defense # 57 paint
    I have been painting for 30 years and have never had so much trouble with a paint. I am painting a ceiling with the Behr ultra scuff defense paint in frost # 57 flat white. The paint leaves roller marks everywhere and you can’t touch up or it shows. I have used 3 gallons and still can’t get roller marks not to show. Very disappointed in this paint. I have used the regular Behr ultra paint before with good results. But not this ultra scuff defense paint, it’s to hard to work with.
    Response from BehrApr 13, 2021
    Hi Eddie,

    Thank you for reviewing Behr ULTRA Interior Scuff Defense Paint. I'm very sorry to hear about the roller mark issue experienced, as it certainly isn't typical or what we want our customers to go through. Applying an additional coat perpendicular to the last should help improve the appearance. Customer satisfaction is very important to us, and I encourage you to contact Behr directly for further assistance.

    Kindest regards,

    Doris Behr
      My new go to paint
      [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I just bought this and painted a bedroom. Love that I only needed one coat to cover the prior color on the walls. It looks great, nice and clean. Love the fact we don't have to worry about marks on the walls and its so easy to keep clean.

        Covers Well
        Purchased two gallons for fear this would not be able to cover the purple and pepto pink I inherited from a previous owner in one coat. Much to my surprise it covered nicely, leaving me a gallon to tackle other projects. I had never heard of an “eggshell” finish but figured I’d give it a try. I won’t be purchasing paint from anywhere else. I would recommend highly.

            Bubbles in paint
            Painted one year ago and this showes up. No water behind it just air.
            Response from Joanna, Behr Customer CareSep 26, 2021
            Hi J345, thanks for sharing your feedback. We’re sorry to hear your paint is bubbling.

            To get your project back on track, we’d recommend scrapping or sanding off the bubbles, cleaning the surface with a damp cloth, allowing it to dry for at least 24 hours, and touching up the affected areas. A complete recoat may be needed to uniform the finish after touching up.

            Customer satisfaction is important to us. So, we’ve reached out to you directly to assist you further. Have a great rest of your weekend.
              Frost is blue
              I wish they would organize their colors by tones. Put the warmer tones on one side and then cool tones on the other. I bought Frost thinking it was a neutral, but crisp white (that’s what it looked like in store) only to use it on the walls and it’s literally blue. It should be called Arctic Frost. Melting icicles looks way better. I REALLY HATE THIS COLOR.
              Response from BehrSep 7, 2021
              Hi Bambi, thank you for your review. I’m sorry to hear that the color did not turn out as expected. Typically, the lighting and surroundings in the room influence the way the color will turn out. Frost 57 is considered a cool white, but should not look completely blue. Customer satisfaction is important to us, and we appreciate your feedback. Please reach out to us directly if you need further assistance; our customer care team is happy to help you! -Giovanna Behr
                Not so great
                I bought one gallon Behr ultra flat paint for a 10x10 bedroom with three doors and one window. Barely enough. Disappointed. When I opened the can the rim was covered with semi cured paint, having to remove this created quite a mess. This paint was a total disappointment after using Behr paint exclusively for approximately 25 years. The application was a chore and the coverage was dismal. I would not recommend this paint.
                Response from Giovanna, Behr Customer CareAug 24, 2021
                Hello, thank you for your review. I'm sorry to hear that you did not get good coverage. This is not typical, and I understand your disappointment. Typically, our Ultra Paint will cover in two coats, while darker colors and porous surfaces may require additional coats. Customer satisfaction is important to us, and we appreciate your feedback. I'll reach out to you in a private email to find the best way to help. Have a great day! -Giovanna
