Usage SummaryBlank space if empty.
Preparation & Prime†Blank space if empty.
  • 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, 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.
ApplicationBlank space if empty.
  • 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.

PREMIUM PLUS ULTRA® Interior Eggshell Enamel No. 2750 is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 2076.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Quality paint! Once you start using this brand, you will really enjoy how well the paint applies, as well how great it looks. A friend recommended it to me and I've been a fan ever since.
Date published: 2019-10-11
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Loyal Fan I have rarely used any other brand of paint. Why mess with perfection? I love the rich velvety look it gives my walls. I am a texture/textile fan and have a very eclectic-global inspired home. The look of Behr Eggshell paint provides a great backdrop for my antique furniture as well as my favorite art. It is soothing, welcoming & goes on like a breeze. I am in love with my living room that I did in Blueprint, along with a few other blues and ivory.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great paint - painfully awful can. Let me start y saying "We LOVE Behr Ultra paints!". We really do. It is all we use on the interior of our home during the extensive remodel. We were a little taken back by the odd renaming to "Scuff Defense", but we were assured that it would match the previous Behr Ultra Eggshell Enamel 2750 we had been using. Time will tell on that front. However, our issue is with the new paint can Behr has thrust onto the scene. You know, the gallon can with the pour spout attachment? I cannot believe this can was put through thorough testing before being release. The pour spout is inadequate and messy. I could overlook this egregious oversight if only my previous silicone gallon can pour spout / cover would fit the new Behr cans. Sadly, it does not. This is the same silicone pour spout sold at Home Depot. Somehow, the new Behr can design is no longer a standard shaped / sized lid?!? If you can't figure out how to create a decent pour spout attachment, please make the lid the same size / shape as before. Seriously, the clean up after using your pour spout was frustrating. We shouldn't be fighting the CONTAINER to do a project. GREAT paint. Awful Can.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing Quality Paint I bought this paint in "Looking Glass" color to paint my house and I couldn't be happier. I have 2 small children and this stuff has great scuff resistance. I'm glad I choose this over the other option I was considering. I ended up painting my whole home with Behr paints. With this particular I did Looking Glass and Jojuba. And I used cabinet and trim paint for kitchen. And ultra white for trim work. I will continue to only use Behr paints from now on for all projects.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Gorgeous Rich Color I was a little hesitant at first to go with a dark color in my family room however I loved the dark color of Iron Mountain and decided to do it as an accent wall. Halfway through I decided to do the two main walls as well as an accent wall. So happy with my decision. My trim, mantle and drapes are a bright white and the remaining walls are the lighter Natural Gray. The white pops off of the Iron Mountain beautifully.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A must for apartment renters. I bought BEHR ultra scuff defense when I moved into my apartment I am so glad that I did because having 3 cats and two people live in a small space you tend to get dirty sports and scrapes on the wall. I just moved out and got my full deposit back. Totally worth it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great coverage Since we've been spending more time than ever at home, we decided our home needed "freshened up". We headed to Home Depot to and was checking out our options for paint when we decided on BEHR ULTRA SCUFF DEFENSE Interior Eggshell Enamel. I am so glad we picked this paint. It went on our walls evenly and the coverage is great. It's easy to wipe clean, and so far it's holding up great against our four young kids.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent coverage We painted a room that was decorated by our daughter when she was in middle school. There were vertical stripes of pastels and horizontal stripes of sponged colors. The Behr Ultra gave excellent coverage. We probably could have only used one coat.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Kids and High Traffic Area = The Best Paint Since the pandemic stay at home orders, I’ve taken this time to redecorate the entire house. I fell in love with Behr paint after using it with my daughter’s room. With my next room (Livingroom), I wanted to go light. However, with kids I didn’t know if it would hold up against my rough children and furniture. (Insert nail biting) When I went in to buy my paint, I knew I wanted Behr, but I came across the Scuff Defense line. Match made in heaven. The paint when on smooth and so far has held up against my children and black furniture. I used a primer and one coat, saving me time and money! Definitely will be buying for other rooms in my house. Purchased in color Silver Drop

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Kidproof! Im so happy I found this paint to hold up to my two sets of twin boys hands all over the walls! The colors are beautiful and made my house look great!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful coverage and color We painted our front door that was a dark red color. We did not prime the door before using this paint. We chose the interior finish because the front door is in an alcove and is protected by a full view storm door. We absolutely love the finish and color. The color is Forest Edge. We also used this to paint a small bookshelf.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Transformed my kitchen! My kitchen sat awaiting the time when my husband's declaration of a remodel would take place. Years passed. Kids grew up, got married and had their own families. Now we are empty nesters. This year, before Thanksgiving I went out and bought Behr Marque Ultra Scuff Defense Interior Eggshell Enamel. A gallon for the cupboards and a quart for the short wall. My kitchen was built in 1822 and is ceiling to floor farmhouse type cupboards except for one wall where my range sits. The paint went on like a dream and nearly finished within an afternoon. The next day one of my daughters showed up with a granddaughter and they took over to finish the areas I had difficulty reaching from my step ladder. Now, I have a new kitchen! Thank you! I love it! All for less than I spend on a pair of groceries. I will never use another brand. Didn't notice any odor either and it is washable, durable and no brush marks! So pleasing to walk into and work in my newly transformed kitchen. I choose a pure white for the cupboards and a grey blue for the wall. I believe it was peaceful blue but the can is in the basement and I don't want to run down there and check. Take my word for is gorgeous. Thanks again Behr.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from new home paint When I found Behr about 7 years ago, I refuse to buy anything else. The odor is minimal if any at all. I use less and do more so costs stay low. It is easy to clean. When I purchased my current home and had the it painted, none of the companies used Behr (cause it was a little more expensive I guess) BUT I specifically said that it was the paint I wanted. I personally know how great it is cause my previous home, I myself (alone) painted the entire interior....oh and one room, I used a different brand (starts with a V) That one room took so much longer to do cause I had to put on 2 coats and it smelled for about a week. Oh to be clear, the company that painted my current home ( I couldn't do it cause the ceilings are 12 ft) anyway the preferred using the Behr, it cost me $150 more to do the entire house but I think it came out cheaper in the end cause the didn't take as long to do it since it only used one coat. see photos of my work..Yes I even painted the patio

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good coverage This paint went on smooth and looks great! Too soon for me to tell how elk the scuff resistance works. When cutting in, plan on doing two coats with this paint because it doesn’t brush on quite like other paints do. Also expect for 1 gallon to only cover 250 sq ft or less due to it not spreading like other paints do.
Date published: 2020-12-14
Rated 5 out of 5 by from It covers very well! This paint gave excellent coverage in one coat. I used paint pad and a brush to cut in. I have double knock down textured walls and they are a pain to paint, but this paint made it a little easier. I’m very happy with it! I love Behr paint!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Blueberry eyes Bought this paint a few days ago and painted our living room this paint is the best,we have been using Behr interior and exterior paint for many years but this is the first time we have used the Ultra Scuff Defense, the clerk asked what color we were painting over which was a deep gold so she recommended this paint, the color we choose was Wheat Bread she said one coat of this paint would cover the walls and she was spot on, one coat and the room looks great and it applied smoothly and evenly, will be using this particular paint from now on all our painting projects thank Behr for making such a great product!!!

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not as good as marquee Let me start by saying I love and only use Behr paint. This paint was awful however. It disappears quickly from the can and doesn’t cover well. Also it doesn’t seem to defend very well against scuffing. It does look very elegant on the wall though . But I’ll probably have to buy a few more cans just to get it to cover all the way I’ve already put two coats! And it was just going over another white color , I used Palais white. I will go back to the Marquee brand.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing paint! This paint has stood up to 6 months of abuse from our family of six, and two dogs. Easily cleaned light gray walls covered with messes from spaghetti night and handprints from virtual elementary art class! I will only buy this paint!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Coverage Not the best coverage for a wallpaper wall, it took two coats of paint and I really need to apply another coat. However the paint is easy to clean up with soap and water.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for older home! When purchasing our home built in 1923, we were nervous about choosing a paint to cover the existing dark blue painted walls and who knows what else underneath. With Behr , our home recieved a freshened look as we chose the shade Chat room for our upstairs . Very pleased with the quality & color selection. Looking to paint our downstairs and exterior soon using Behr paint as well!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this Paint!! I have now painted nearly every room in my home with exception of my kids rooms & laundry with Behr paint. I love how well it coats. My nearest Home Depot is over 20 miles away but every time I have to touch up paint I’m reminded why it’s worth the drive instead of Menards’ choices! I will never go back!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Blueberry Whip Interior I purchased the Behr Ultra with Scuff Defense in the Blueberry Whip color. I really like the eggshell finish since it is like latex paint and is good at resisting dirt and grime. You only need one or two coatings which is great and doesn't take long to dry. It is also affordable. I would highly recommend Behr.
