  • Clean and sand new or weathered wood. Scuff sand or degloss smooth or glossy surfaces.

  • Lock in stains with the first primer coat; if necessary, apply a second primer coat of BEHR PREMIUM PLUS ULTRA.
  • For drastic colour changes or when applying deep colours denoted with a dagger (†) on the colour chip, apply a tinted primer coat of BEHR ULTRA if needed.
Application
  • Apply product on dry substrates when air and surface temperatures are between 2°-32°C and will remain between 2°-32°C for at least 4 hours after applying.
  • Allow paint film to dry for at least 60 minutes prior to rain showers when temperatures are between 15°-21° C and 60-70% relative humidity. Lower temperatures, higher humidity or deep colours may increase dry time and/or rain resistance time.
  • Stir paint occasionally. Intermix containers of same product to ensure colour and sheen uniformity.

  • Certain colours may require more than one coat for complete hide.
  • On heavy stains and woods that contain tannins, allow 12-16 hours of dry time between coats.
  • After 4 weeks, cured paint film may be cleaned with a mild, non-abrasive liquid detergent. Dry paint film is mildew resistant.
  • When applying to vinyl, colour choice must be the same colour or lighter than the existing colour.
  • Do not use on floors.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Impressive Paint Behr Premium Plus Ultra is a rich, smooth and easy to use paint, a real pleasure to work with. We used the Exterior Flat and it rolls like a dream and glides off the brush like silky butter, which provides impressive coverage. It's also extremely durable and it cleans easily. We highly recommend this top-quality paint to our friends and family.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic coverage I used Behr premium plus ultra exterior flat to paint the outside of my house. It glided on so smoothly and covered in one coat! My neighbors and myself were amazed at the results. I even had a professional painting company come over to give me estimates for some other work and they asked what company painted the house. They were astonished that I did it myself. Great compliment from a professional.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great paint I bought this paint about a month ago to paint the exterior stucco of our house. The paint has a great thickness that goes on easily and covers very well. Stucco is a little difficult to paint with its roughness but we only had to use one good coat. We loved the paint & will definitely use again.
