DIY - Gloss paint

Just a quick one, I need to do a second coat of gloss on some woodwork at home. I've used Dulux (oil based) non-drip. Do I need to lightly sand the first coat down before applying a second coat?

TIA

On the basis that the quality of the prep determines the quality of the finish then yes.

Andy.

if it is a 2nd / recoat, then i dont bother as it takes so long to dry hard enough. But if its been a while, then yes.

Yes, just a fine grade paper and lightly sand. Gives the next coat something to key to.

If you’re applying a 2nd coat recently following the 1st coat, I don’t sand.

And don’t forget, any large areas, use a 4” foam roller, smooth paint, no brush lines and spreads it out much easier

This was the best painting tip I've ever been given.
Almost makes applying gloss a pleasure

With the talk of taking time to get proper hardness, how would you define recently? Days/weeks/longer?

If I was painting gloss, 'recently' regarding a 2nd coat for myself would be a matter of days really...

Well after much research and youtubing, there is not correct answer as far as I can tell.

Dulux (Trade) themselves say a second coat can be done within 24 hours but after 16 hours of the first coat going down. So I've taken a massive punt and slapped some more on. Looks OK so far. I'll come back to this thread in 6 months and let you know if it's all peeled off!

(In hindsight, I should have prepped more.)
