countertop epoxy second flood coat


Hi everyone. I've been reading posts on this site for a while, but i just registered so hopefully this community can help me solve my problem.

So... I just used varathane bar and table top finish on a countertop. Thing is I ran out of epoxy without covering the entire surface with a thick enough layer. I could could not get my hands on more of the stuff until now. The surface is now cured (it's been MORE than 48hres). Some parts are a little wavy and the edges are not properly coated. I want to know the process and surface preparation needed to apply a second flood coat. Do i need to lightly sand the surface to ensure a "mechanical bond" ? If I do so, will the next coat bring back the smooth shiny glass finish ? I've read about it, but always with other brands of clear epoxy coating, nothing about the varathane brand. Can I just pour another coat as it is now, meaning no sanding or buffing ? I tried to call and write to varathane(rust-o-leum), but no luck, nobody answers....

Thank you for any tips and advice !!

What does Varathane say about this? Without any guidance from them, I would be inclined to scuff the surface with sandpaper before the next pour (removing the sanding dust, of course).

Ah, sorry - you did say that at the end of your question and I missed it.
