My first coat of Dulux Satinwood Trade has been on 17 hours and is only very slightly tacky. Can I lightly sand it yet or should I wait till it's really dry?

This is a solvent based paint and as such the drying times are much longer than water based paints as all the chemicals they used for driers have had to be removed under the 2010 VOC regulations.
The thing you have to watch is sanding too early as it might drag the softer paint just under the surface and ruin the finish. Quite frankly you should only need to touch it lightly to remove the nibs and I would use a worn out bit of sand paper for this or rub a new piece on concrete to take the abrasiveness back.

Be patient. :thumbright:

or use Oakey (240) or 320 grit paper (I think b&poo used to shell that or similar in sheets).

sanding wet paint is a No,No. all the dust will end up on top of the surface.
