Batimix Ret DG2-L

Dry mix shotcrete liquid set-retarding admixture


BATIMIX Ret DG2-L is a synthetically produced set-retarding admixture for shotcrete based on selected gluconate modified organic polymers. It does not contain any corroding ingredient that could potentially attack steel, aluminum, or zinc embedments.

Main Purpose

BATIMIX Ret DG2-L delays concrete setting to allow for placing and finishing operations, particularly in hot climates. It is used to transport shotcrete over long distances or cope with delivery schedules lengthened by traffic jams.

BATIMIX Ret DG2-L extends setting times, eliminating cold joints between adjacent shotcrete layers in large concrete-pours, or if casting rates are very-slow.


Shotcrete prepared with BATIMIX Ret DG2-L is characterized by the following:

In the plastic state:

  • Prolonged and controlled rates of setting
  • Reduced cold joints or other discontinuities
  • Improved slump retention and finishing times

In the hardened state:

  • Reduced water permeability and cracking
  • Non-staining and better surface appearance
  • Improved shotcrete durability
