Ultra Pure White is part of BEHR's Designer Collection Color Palette
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.
Exceptional burnish resistance provides an easy-clean finish for long lasting beauty
Very difficult to work with and extremely sensitive to high ambient temperature. Started drying as I was applying / brushing it on aluminum shutters in the shade. Streaked and dried finish sheen was uneven. I had to sand and recoat with a regular latex enamel and encountered no problems when doing so. I was told by Behr product support that the issue was excessive temperature and I should wait until the temperature decreased below 90 ( which at times it was) which rules out the entire summer and part of the fall. Florda residents who consider using this product outdoors should be aware of this requirement.

Hi Richard. Thank you for your review. I'm sorry the paint was drying as you applied it and left a streaky and uneven finish. I recommend letting the paint dry, sanding smooth any texture the paint created, cleaning the surface, letting it dry, then touching up and recoating with paint. And it sounds like you were able to do that, which is great. Customer satisfaction is very important to us, and we appreciate your feedback. Please feel free to reach out to our Customer Care team directly for further assistance. Our team is happy to help you! -Joni

I prefer this paint over all others
This is my second time using Behr Paint & Primer and it far surpasses other major brands. I love that I can skip the priming. I did need 2 coats but that's expected (and would've needed 3 if I had to prime first) It applies beautifully & dries to perfection. The color selection is outstanding. Can't wait for my next project. I'll definitely be using this again.

Doesn’t always stick
Peel like skin. Had to remove the peel and use additional dedicated primer. Then why the label says paint/primer?

The consistency of this paint is like white glue. I used it on primed doors. The coverage was actually spotty so when I went back over the less than covered parts, it had already started to dry and resulted in horrible gloppiness on the doors. The consistency is like a thick white glue. Very disappointed. I took a fine sandpaper to them which is a little better. They are in the basement or I’d have to totally redo them - probably get new doors. Get the regular two-coat paint!

Hi Susan, thank you for your review. I'm sorry to hear that the paint was thick and difficult to use. This is not typical, as the paint should have a creamy consistency. Our Marquee Paint should cover in one coat when tinted to a one-coat color and applied over a previously painted or primed surface.

This is the first time I have used BEHR ULTRA....
This is the first time I have used BEHR ULTRA. I was really impressed how easy it was to apply and how well it covered. I only needed one coat. I thought for sure I would need two gallons and I only needed one. I will definitely use this paint for my future painting needs. I chose the color of Spinning Silk and it looks great.

Paint had lumps in it
I purchased 2 gallons, took to the job and began using. Paint had lumps of semi dried paint "skin " in it. I had to pick off the rollers or pick off the wall if I missed it before I applied the paint. Since it was a mixed color and I had opened the cans to start the job, I could not return to Home Depot. I luckily had enough to finish the job.
The attached photos are of the pain lumps in the roller tray, and the one on the roller was placed on the roller to show in more clarity.

As an interior designer and a homeowner, I have spec'd a lot of paint colors for walls, trim, ceilings, and exteriors through the years as well as done the labor myself. Due to the exponentially increasing price of paint, I chose Behr over a competitor due to its cost and quality. The coverage was great and it went on smoothly in my newly renovated living room. Love the new lids/spouts too.
