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

  • 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 removing product.
  • 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 SCUFF DEFENSE 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 SCUFF DEFENSE Paint as a spot primer.
  • For heavy stains, test for stain bleed-through by applying BEHR ULTRA SCUFF DEFENSE Paint to a small section. If stain bleeds through, spot prime another coat to the stained area and test again before topcoating. If bleeding continues, a longer dry time is needed before topcoating.
  • 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 SCUFF DEFENSE Paint if needed.
  • Apply when air and surface temperatures are between 10-32°C. 
  • Stir paint occasionally. 
  • Intermix containers of same product to ensure colour and sheen uniformity. 
  • Use a high quality 10-13 mm 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 250 mL per 3.79 L. 
  • Certain colours may require additional coats for  complete  hide.  
  • Darker colours 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 product and soiled rags, contact your household refuse collection service.
