2nd coating pro classic


Im spraying my trim with SW pro classic semi gloss, do I need to scuff sand before 2nd coating?

Thanks Dan

It's often done to improve the smoothness of the final coat. Especially if there is any contaminates in the first coat like dust, roller fuzz, etc.
But no, you do not Have to. A second coat applied soon after the first will adhere just fine without scuff sanding.

No the sheen won't make a difference.
