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.
  • After 4 weeks, cured paint film may be cleaned with a mild, non-abrasive liquid detergent. Dry paint film is mildew resistant.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Covers well! I used this recently in my bathroom going from an aqua blue to cream white. That’s not the easiest switch. It did well and I’m glad I went with the stain blocker because I used it in the rest of my house, but skipped the bathrooms. What stains in the bathrooms right? Everything! Makeup, hairspray, lotions, self tanner and things you will never figure out. Get stain blocker in bathrooms.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Product We have purchased and used this product on three bedrooms, the master bath, and the guest bathroom. We would recommend this to anyone looking for great coverage, easy application and easy clean up. Two of the bedrooms have been done for about three years and the finish is still like we painted it yesterday, the same with the guest bath. We just finished the master bath, and are working on our master bedroom. We have continued to use Behr paint, because it is an excellent product, and we will continue use it in the future.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The only interior paint I'll use! Behr Ultra Scuff Defense Interior Eggshell Enamel is the only interior paint my family will use. We have kids and animals, so the scuff defense is very important in our household. The paint holds up well, always looks fresh, is easy to apply, dries fast and really withstands our rambunctious bunch of wall touchers, scratchers and bumpers.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Easy application. I painted my dining room over old red paint and I almost didn’t need two coats but I went ahead and did two coats it was an easy application and the color is great I always use Behr paint anytime I paint. I love Behr paint.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great paint but still requires 2 coats I purchased this paint almost a year ago and finally got the chance to paint. I love Behr paint. I like the consistency- not to thin and not to thick. I’ve been painting with Behr for over 20 years and will be the only paint I use. Make sure you go to the same store for additional paint as I found out that a different store will provide a different tint.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Color match magic I brought in a cabinet sample and was looking for paint colors to match. I wasn’t aware that I could get an exact color match, but I’m so pleased with my paint. The Behr Ultra was great for my kitchen pantry door and it matches my cabinet perfectly.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Exceptional By far the best brand of paint that I have purchased. It went on smoothly, excellent quality, only required one coat and the odor was minimal. Priced just right.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Serious Decline in Quality U have used Behr Ultra paint for years, and no matter what color I was using or what color I was painting over, rarely did I need more than 2 coats. Often I was able to get by with one coat. This paint covered evenly and cleanly. As a professional painter, I recommend this paint as a less expensive alternative to other brands, one that performed just as well if not better. However, recently I have had repeated runs of bad experiences with this brand. I painted an accent wall in my home that took a surprising three coats to cover. I thought maybe it was just a quirk of that particular color. But this week, I did a job for a client repainting their rental before selling. We were going from a beige to a white. It was a white I have used before over much more saturated colors and never needed more than 2 coats. This time was completely different. The first coat went on so thinly and unevenly it was as if i were using just a basic primer. The second coat wasn't much better -- really uneven coverage with a lot of bleed through of the underlying color. I was stunned. I've never had this experience with this paint before. I can only surmise that they have changed the formula. Whatever, the reason, I will no longer use this paint or recommend it to my clients. What a disappointment.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Flashing issue After my fourth coat on the walls, I've determined this paint (Behr Ultra Scuff Defense, eggshell), has terrible flashing issues. I was not expecting it to look good after 1 coat (despite advertising), but the paint must dry so fast that it impossible to get an even sheen. I have tried reloading a premium 3/8 nap roller until it's almost dripping and painted an entire wall in about 20 minutes but keep getting the same result. (uneven sheen) If you don't care about the sheen being even, then the paint covers well. Having painted all the rooms in multiple houses over the years but this is by far the worst results I've had to deal with. I'm not sure what they've changed but it's definitely not for the better.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from No finger prints! I painted about a month ago in my hallway. Previously the fingerprints were insane. (My kids always touch these walls going up and down). After a months time on this whitish wall there still ZERO fingerprints!! I have even scraped up against it with my laundry basket and cannot see even a scratch! Amazing stuff!!!
Date published: 2021-02-12
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great coverage but terrible packaging We purchased 10 gallons of various shades of Behr paints for our new home. My husband loves working with this particular brand as he feels it is easy to apply and holds up well. However, the new lids on the cans are troublesome as they are no longer metal but plastic. The paint hardens on the inside of the cover which scabs up and drops off into the paint which is then transferred onto the roller and ultimately onto the walls which my husband has to stop painting and pick the pieces off of the wall. He’s finding this very frustrating.
