It can be smoothed up if there is a drip or run if I am very careful. I have done that. By not sandable I mean not like surfacers or primer surfacers or other high build primers or even some of the cheaper red oxide or lacquer primers. PPG recommends 1 or 2 coats for the Omni version. I sand it only if I have made a mistake. Not much sense in using it as a high build when there are much better products available. IMO epoxy should be used as the base coat on everything. If outside the window it has to be scuffed or sanded, makes no difference if it goes to bare metal as it has to be reapplied. I haven't used Nason, perhaps it is formulated differently that allows it to be applied thicker. I see no advantage in that either. PPG MP 170 is really thin, probably the reason PPG recommends two coats, used to be one. I have always used two because I am not skilled enough to get perfect coverage with one coat.

It depends on what you are doing. All the high build products I have tried are either too soft, too brittle, or don't have enough mechanical strength. Heavy epoxy application, lots of cure time, and skilled sanding, are the best I have found for my shop's jobs.

With PPG Omni MP 182 surfacer I have had zero problems. It would take many applications of Omni MP 170 to do what you describe. To each his own.
