Thats what I thought (epoxies are hard to sand) until I found SPI .I 'm not using ANY 2k (urathane primer) because SPI epoxy also builds along with exellent sanding....
When an epoxy balls up and gums the paper its most likely not completely cured OR it wasnt properly mixed to the right ratio....I've had epoxy take a week to cure sometimesbut it was really piled on there
