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 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.
ApplicationBlank space if empty.
  • 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 more than one coat 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.
DisposalBlank space if empty.
  • For disposal of empty containers, unused paint and soiled rags, contact your household refuse collection service.

BEHR ULTRA™ SCUFF DEFENSE™ Interior Eggshell Enamel is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 2173.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great quality paint We always went with a famous more expensive brand. My husband wanted to try Behr because it is very highly rated. I had my doubts. We started with two gallons and ended up getting 5 more! We painted our master bedroom, great room, kitchen and foyer. We were able to finish in a short amount of time and love the coverage. We are very pleased with the finished product, and our friends and family have given lots of compliments. We just went back yesterday to our local Home Depot for two more gallons to paint our office and guest room.

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.

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 coverage I bought this as I was painting at my son's new home & wanted to upgrade from product previously used. The coverage was great and Behr's eggshell finish was more durable. Excellent results!
