BEHR ULTRA® SCUFF DEFENSE™ Interior Extra Durable Flat is rated 2.1 out of 5 by 13.
Rated 2 out of 5 by from Great idea... so you think We picked this due to a recommendation from an employee. We were excited about the scuff defense. Went on great and the color was great. When we moved furniture back into the room, we accidentally rubbed a couch on the wall and the paint just peeled off. So yes the scuff defense works if you consider the paint coming off the wall it something rubs against it. Yes, walls were prepped properly.
