About This Product

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 flat paint durability. BEHR ULTRA SCUFF DEFENSE features breakthrough innovation to deliver a rich flat finish that is truly durable enough for high-traffic areas. This low-reflective flat finish is easy to clean, touches up well and hides minor surface imperfections. Don't settle or compromise between the flat 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, dining rooms, bedrooms and ceilings
  • Available in an EXTRA DURABLE FLAT SHEEN which provides a beautiful non-reflective appearance along with excellent touch-ups
  • Toasty Gray is a muddy gray with a green undertone. Depending on the light source or time of day, it may appear as a light greige on the walls.
  • 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 a flat finish appearance with scuff resistance of a gloss, a combination not typical in traditional flat paints
  • Advanced scuff and mar resistance helps protect wall surfaces in busy households. Do not use on floors.
  • Exceptional burnish resistance provides an easy-clean finish for long lasting beauty

Answer This Question

A:  Hi lmt1965, thank you for your question. Unfortunately, we do not have any coatings that we can recommend for a vinyl shower stall. Our products are not designed to be submerged under water or get wet constantly. I recommend looking into a specialty product for your project. Have a great day! -Giovanna

    Q:Can I use this paint on countertop
    by|Mar 8, 2024
    1 Answer
    Answer This Question

    A:  Hi Vivi, thanks for the question. We don't recommend using our products on countertops because they are not approved for use on surfaces that come into direct contact with food. Also, the constant cleaning and exposure to water could cause the coating to fail prematurely. I'd suggest checking with your local home improvement store for a product that is designed to be used on countertops. Have a great day! -Ronald

          Behr paint
          Beautiful color! Nice and easy to apply this paint. Love, how it’s turned out.

            Behr Aqua Fresco is the perfect teal
            Behr paint gives a great finished product. Coverage is really good. And I have found the prettiest teal paint, aqua fresco. Love, love, love it!

              I chose this Bakery Box white paint for a Coastal Decor bedroom makeover. It's a soft neutral white that works with just about any shade of blue. Repaired plaster walls and plywood faux shiplap boards got a coat of plaster then a coat of this. I'm very pleased with the results.

              We only got a quart because we had a small wall to cover and this paint was so good that it covered a darker brown with just one coat. My wife was impressed, and she is a professional painter!

              Poor civerage
              Terrible coverage… applied a quality primer before this paint . So far i have used a gallon of this paint and the coverage was poor so went back to get a quart and still need to go back and get more more. The color before was a light yellow so not a dark color. The room is a small guest room with 8 ft ceilings. It has been a huge waste of time and money.

                Not low-VOC
                IDK what passes for low VOC nowadays but this is the foulest smelling paint I have ever used. I actually vomited from the fumes. Two days later it is still off-gassing like mad despite the area being very well ventilated. Also, this is the fault of the paint mixers, but the color I ordered was nowhere close to the color of the sample paint I got (see pic). On the plus side, it does cover in 2 coats. I recommend sticking with Behr Premium Plus or something from an actual paint store.

                  Gorgeous Norwegian Blue!
                  Norwegian Blue…ahhhh, talk about a dream! Our guest bedroom was an ugly butterscotch tan and needed a facelift. This blue is absolutely beautiful! Very happy with how it turned out!

                    Perfect color for my moody office jungle!
                    I am so happy with the results of my recent office makeover. I don’t usually go with bolder colors because I have so many plants throughout my home but this color is just gorgeous! 1 gallon took care of my 10x10 office walls, very happy with the coverage and saturation. Already picking out the next Behr color for my ceilings in all the living spaces and one for my master bedroom.

                      I have had this paint on my ceiling for 3 years
                      I decided to go bold with my living room ceiling and do the ceiling golden yellow, the people at the paint desk were super encouraging and it was a pretty large space but they knew I could do it alone. I LOVE THIS PAINT. It was so so seamless and easy to get a good coverage. I did two rounds of painting both of the ceiling and the walls with white paint. I would do it again in a heartbeat with behr paint it was so easy…
