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
  • Available in an EXTRA DURABLE FLAT SHEEN which provides a beautiful non-reflective appearance along with excellent touch-ups
  • Excellent hide; 5 gallons cover up to 2000 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.

I love this beige!
We have 2 rooms in this color. It took me forever to find a beige color that works for me....they were all too pink, too purple, too gray, too green. Behr's Antique White was the perfect warm beige that didn't have undertones that scream at you. It looks wonderful next to white trim...Antique White and white trim create a very calm but airy look. This is "my" beige -- my only beige. Every time I try out a different beige, I'm disappointed and go back to Behr's Antique White.

      Excellent coverage, spreadability, and hiding. Virtually no drip or spatter. The Antique White turned out to be a bit more yellow than I expected when I actually covered the walls with it, but not worth my time starting all over.

      Excellent coverage, "hideability", and "spreadability". I bought mine directly from homedepot.com. The sample mixed by the local store did not accurately match the paint chip. I really like the way this paint goes on. It's very hard to cause it to drip or spatter.
