Can I apply a second coat of Original Satin Finish?

A common question asked is: 

Your instructions say that I should only apply one coat of Original Satin Finish, but it doesn’t look right. Can I apply a second coat of Original Satin Finish?

We recommend only one coat of Satin for clarity reasons as mentioned here, but if you need a second coat to take care of any issues, it is perfectly fine to do so. It is recommended to lightly sand the surface to remove some of the flattener from the first application and keep your clarity high. However, it is not necessary to do so for adhesion. All Original products will adhere to any other Original product. If you have imperfections that you are trying to remove, a light sanding is a good idea.
