The basecoat of joint compound (like Dura Bond 90) becomes hard as a rock and is very difficult to sand or damage.It also keeps the nails from popping out over time.
The finishing coats of joint compound are put on in skim coats and feathered out to make invisible seams in the drywall joints and the nail or screw divots.When applied properly there is very little sanding needed to make a totally smooth surface for your paint.
"That's my understanding."
