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.

  • 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

            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!
