Major applications

Oleris® Dimethyl Sebacate can be used as an intermediate to produce light stabilizers. It can also be employed as a plasticizer, softening agent and solvent for cellulosic resins, synthetic resins and rubbers.

Focus on...High performance light stabilizers application

Oleris® Dimethyl Sebacate (DMS) is widely used as a synthesis intermediate to produce HALS (Hindered Amines Light Stabilizer) which are light stabilizers additives:

  • HALS are used in plastics and coatings to protect surfaces and pigments against photo degradation by deactivation of free radicals. 
  • HALS enable to avoid surface defects, loss of mechanical properties, loss of water impermeability and pigment fading.
  • HALS are generally recognized as the highest-performance stabilizers on the market.

Oleris® Dimethyl Sebacate (DMS) can also be used as a plasticizer, like Oleris® DBS.
