Product Overview

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.
  • Suitable for 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

Good finish
[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] Used this product for kitchen accent wall, finish is consistent and clean. Scuff defense is negotiable in a high use area, shows wear as I would expect any paint to.

    Great Coverage
    [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I purchased this paint for repainting downstairs areas, the coverage is great, primer not needed. Not sure of the scuff defense feature yet. I would recommend for great coverage and appearance. Colors used: Classic Grey, Elephant Grey, and White.

      The best paint I've ever used.
      [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] So backstory I am a handyman/contractor, I've worn a lot of hats in my time and I've done all types of painting from residential to commerical, to light industrial. Using every brand you can think of and a variety of types within each brand. I've always had an affinity for Behr Paint and primer Ultra. It's always been one of my favorites, along with top end Sherwin Williams which is twice the price literally even with a discount. I have to say the new design is even better with the scuff defense than it was before. I I am always so happy putting this on walls. The ease of flow, bond, viscosity, and length of paint never ceases to amaze me. Please don't change this it's perfect!

        [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I spent a lot of extra money to get this premium paint because of the promised one coat coverage and "Scuff Defense" feature. It actually took not one, not two, but THREE coats to hide the previous color- so it ended up costing me twice as much as anticipated since not only did it cost more per gallon, but I had to buy twice much paint (and do three times the labor!). I have also accidentally bumped into the walls a couple times already and found that it scuffs just as easily as any other paint. Save yourself a lot of money, time, and effort and get something cheaper.
          Scuff defense paint
          [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] We bought this paint yesterday and finished our project in one afternoon. The paint is wonderful for covering just about any color with one coat and great ease. BEHR paint has been our go to paint for many years inside and outside.

              My new go to
              [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] Paint went on easy. Dried quickly. The scuff defense is already paying dividends.

                  Great coverage but chipping
                  [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] we used this paint in our bathroom. It has great coverage and color, but it started chipping and peeling in under 5 months!!! Sad to say, but we expected more from this paint.

                  Hi lg0723, thank you for your review. I’m so sorry the paint started chipping and peeling after only a few months. I recommend removing any loose paint, cleaning the surface and letting it dry, then touching up and recoating where needed. Customer satisfaction is important to us, and we appreciate your feedback. I’ll reach out to you directly to assist you with this further. Thank you again for taking the time to share your experience with us, and I hope to hear from you soon! -Joni
                    Everything in a gallon!
                    [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] It’s the best paint. Perfect texture, not too thick or too this and covers in one coat.
