DMS is used in HALS (Hindered Amine Light Stabilisers) via the production of Dimethyl Succinate/4 hydroxy-1-(2-hydroxyethyl )-2,2,6,6 –tetramethylpiperidine copolymer. HALS are used to inhibit degradation of polymers. DMS is also used as a pigment intermediate DMS is also used in Pharma applications. It has been used to form one step furan resins in subterranean wellbores, conductive pastes and even paper coatings and photographics.
