not if you sand it wet
I only ever use gel coat, once you knock the initial layer back with some 400 grit wet & dry, there is no sticky. I just work down the grades to 1200 grit always keeping it wet with aforesaid hint of Fairy. Then I use the Fein with a polishing pad & cutting compound. Finish with a polish of Mer.
