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; 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

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.
Response from Joanne, Behr Customer CareNov 8, 2021
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

        Great coverage
        [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I bought this as I was painting at my son's new home & wanted to upgrade from product previously used. The coverage was great and Behr's eggshell finish was more durable. Excellent results!

          Very good look
          [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I bought a house a few months ago and used the ultra eggshell in three rooms and they look great. I even got away with mostly one coat.

            Beautiful colors!
            [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I am updating my walls with new colors. Current color was antique white so I needed something to create a style I'd envisioned. Went to Home Depot and stayed in the paint section for about two hours because of the different hues of the same color, I didnt know where to start! I needed a brown but not just any brown. Not too light and not too dark to match with an orange color I chose( Carmelized Orange). The lady in the department picked out just what I needed in one try. I trusted her judgement so I didnt buy a sample. Anxious to go home and crack it open. Well, I opened it up and was kind of skeptical at first. So I proceeded with pouring the paint and stuck my roller and rolled it on the wall. I stared at the wall as if I was taking a hard test. Continued the task of finishing my wall. Let me tell you. When that paint dried a little I was doing a little jig because the color was wonderful. Exact brown I wanted. The color was Cider Spice. So I continued to dance while applying the color because I was happy with the results! When everything will be put together it will be breathtaking.

              Great paint
              [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] As a professional painter, I’ve used a lot of different brands of paint. Behr is by far the best. The scuff defense especially holds up well. I recommend this to all of my customers

                  Great coverage
                  [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I painted a room that had 3 darker wall colors and immediately noticed the quality and better texture of the paint. Not only did it go on smoothly, but took less effort to cover the existing paint and was more evenly spread throughout the room.
                    Love Behr Colors
                    [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] We painted several rooms that had smoke stains. We cleaned the walls and ceilings and used Behr Ultra Egg Shell with primer. From the lightest grey to the darker grey, they covered in one coverage. It was unbelievable!!! We are very happy with our experiance of using Behr. I would recomend this paint to everyone. Also loved the pour spout, made for less drips. Thank you Behr!
