I have no knowledge about Dupont so I would say check the tech sheets, all your answers about sanding will be there.

On the humidity, that is a tough one. With the air already full of moisture, the water in the paint has no where to go. The biggest thing is air movement and heat. The air movement is tricky in that just blowing air on the surface creates a low pressure area right on the surface and the solvents (read that H2O in this case) don't get pulled out.

Running the air sideways across the surface is best. But having one of these is highly recommended for flashing waterborne.

Item on Ebay (click here)

This device makes the air "tumble" over the surface pulling the solvents out of the film.
