Working in smaller sections can help with this, or after a few passes you could spray with a little QD to help revive it all for refining the compound for a few passes.

I'd say this is a nature of almost all SMAT compounds. And at this point I don't understand WHY manufacturers make SMAT compounds so short working? Idea is great, you can buff as long as you need without loosing cutting
ability and without multiple sets. But no... they dries very fast and dusting a lot. Sometimes I mix compounds with more oily polishes like M205, S40, Ultrafina to extend working time.

It can be a pain in the backside the dust that is created by SMAT compounds only but if you mix some D300 to 105 it kind of cuts the dusting down a hell of a lot. Sometimes it can be the choice of cutting pad you use that can create a lot of dust combine with the compound, like Meguairs MF cutting pads but I've found that using the flexi MF cutting pads that you can get from PB work great with SMAT compounds

I'm yet to really mix up some SMAT heavy cut compounds with something with a bit more work time.

I have some CG V32 which dusts up quickly, I might try blending it and see how it goes.

Altho I'm sure chongo might have some suggestions on that
