Where to Use

Properly prepared coated and uncoated Interior surfaces. Ideal for Family Rooms, Living Rooms, Dining Rooms, Bedrooms, Hallways and Ceilings.

Usage Summary
Preparation & Prime†
  • All surfaces should be properly prepared and cleaned. Remove loose paint, wash off dirt and grease with detergent, rinse and allow to dry.
  • Remove mildew stains with a mildew stain remover. Scuff sand glossy surfaces and repair imperfections. Remove all dust with a damp cloth, allow to dry.
  • Allow new stucco, plaster and masonry to cure for 30 days before painting.
  • Use BEHR ULTRA paint as a primer for properly prepared uncoated or painted interior surfaces, including woods that contain tannins (two primer coats required for redwood and cedar) and heavily stained areas.
  • Lock in stains with BEHR ULTRA as a spot primer.
  • For heavy stains, test for stain bleed-through by applying BEHR ULTRA as a topcoat to a small section. If the stain bleeds through the topcoat, spot prime another coat to the stained area and test again before topcoating. If bleeding continues, a longer dry time is needed before top coating.
  • For drastic color changes or when applying deep colors denoted with a dagger (†) on the color chip, apply a tinted primer coat of BEHR ULTRA if needed.
  • Apply when air and surface temperatures are between 50-90°F (10-32°C).
  • Stir paint occasionally. Intermix containers of same product to ensure color and sheen uniformity.
  • Use a high quality 3/8-1/2" nap roller cover, nylon/polyester brush or an airless sprayer (.015-.019" spray tip, 60 mesh filter).
  • Do not thin if using a roller or brush; however, if using a sprayer and thinning is required, thin with water at a rate of no more than 1/2 pint per gallon.
  • Certain colors may require more than one coat for complete hide.
  • Darker colors may require additional dry time between coats. Cooler temperatures or higher humidity may prolong drying time.
  • After 4 weeks, cured paint film may be cleaned with a mild, non-abrasive liquid detergent. Dry paint film is mildew resistant.
  • Do not use on floors.
  • For disposal of empty containers, unused paint and soiled rags, contact your household refuse collection service.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Moved to a new house, will use again! I read an article that blue bedrooms help sell a house, so we decided to paint our master bedroom Oslo blue satin paint. The second person to view the house offered us our asking price within two weeks! We loved it so very much that we decided to paint the master bedroom in our new house the same color and finish. We were able to paint our entire fairly large bedroom with just one gallon of paint. I was so happy with the final result!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Exceptional I will not use another brand again. This paint has exceptional coverage. I have used this in several rehab condos and have covered even rubber tire marks on the walls with only one coat. If painting over flat finishes or lights colors, plan on a second coat or at least some touch up areas. You won't be sorry afyet purchasing and using this paint!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great coverage with the colour. I have been repainting my house with the satin in a bright white. Granted, most people don't decide to paint their entire house in such a bright bright white, but with my 1950's house design, there isn't as much natural light and I would like. I had honestly thought it would take 3-4 coats to really have a solid even white, but 2 coats has done the job for every room thus far. I can't even imagine how well a darker colour would work if the bright white covers so well in just 2 coats.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Worth the money Two coats and everything looked great. I've painted a few rooms throughout my life and spending a few dollars more on better paint is worth it in the end.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from water resisted I painted some of the inside of my cottage last summer. Water levels of the lake this spring where are record highs. Water got in though the front door. After it dried out, mold grew on some of the walls. Not on the one's I pained last year. So plan on painting the rest of them this year.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent coverage We bought 4 gallons of this paint with primer for our new sun room. We are enclosing an existing open patio off the back of our house and painting over stucco walls & ceiling. Coverage is excellent with a few areas that need a second coat. Project is not complete at this point.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Only Paint I use to paint our school district 8 years ago I started using this Behr ultra interior paint to paint the inside of a remodel project that we added rooms to our Middle School. I was impressed with the coverage (did not have to prime) and now 8 years later the durability, especially with the traffic of Middle School Students. I have tried other brands and I always come back to the value of Behr.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great coverage I purchased an older house that hasn't been painted in YEARS. Even though it was dark blue and I was painting a lighter color over, this paint covered with no problem. There were a handful of areas I had to go and touch back up where it showed brush marks but for the most part, I expected to use 2 full coats to cover up the dark with a light color and it only took one.
