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 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

  • Ultra Pure White is part of BEHR's Designer Collection Color Palette
  • 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

Expensive and garbage
Painted my garage door with this. It dries so fast. Looks good and then it dries on the project it leaves brush and roller marks everywhere. Also you will need 2 coats even if you prime. Brushed my first coat and it you could see every time the brush was picked up. Paid a good amount of money for a gallon of paint, regret buying this paint.
Response from BehrMay 16, 2022
Hi there, thank you for your review. I'm sorry to hear that you're not getting good coverage and that the paint dried too fast. Our Marquee paint should cover in one coat when tinted to one of the one-coat colors and applied over a previously painted surface. One tip when the paint is drying too fast, you can add up to 4 ounces of water per gallon to increase the working time with the paint. 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! -Ronald Behr
    Covers in about 1 1/2 coats. ;0)
    I bought this because Behr guarantees it will cover in one coat. It did not. It almost covers in one coat, but I needed to go back and re-roll everything to cover up any light spots. I would still probably buy it again. It is nice paint.
