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

        Hi Hope - Thank you for your review. I'm sorry to hear that to coverage was poor and the finish looks uneven. Our Dynasty paint line was designed to cover your previously painted or primed surfaces in one coat when tinted to a color from our One-Coat Color palette. Colors outside of this palette (like Whisper White HDC-MD-08) may require additional coats for full coverage and a uniform finish. Please feel free to reach out to us directly so we can learn more about your project and assist you with this further. We hope to hear from you. - Sara Behr

            Hello mike, thank you for your review. I’m so sorry the paint needed multiple coats. Typically our Marquee Paint should cover in one coat when tinted to select colors from our One-Coat Color Collection and applied to a previously coated surface. Colors outside this collection may require additional coats to provide the coverage needed. Customer satisfaction is important to us, and we appreciate your feedback. Please feel free to reach out to our Customer Care team directly for further assistance with this. Our team is happy to help you! -Joni Behr

            Behr premium plus requires 3 coats, its runny, leaves drips and I would not recommend it. I tried Marquis and its better quality, but not as good as Sherwin Williams paints.

            My online 5 gallon of paint much better than the one I got in the store. The one from the store had multiple clumps when painter got to last 3-4 inches so couldn’t be used. If I do again, I’ll order on line.
