n-Butanol is an eminently suitable solvent for acid-curable lacquers and baking finishes derived from urea, melamine, or phenolic resins. In these applications, it is mostly used together with glycol ethers or ethanol. When added even in small proportions to alkyd resin paints, n-Butanol reduces their viscosity and thus improves their brushability and flow. Low concentrations of n-Butanol prevent cobwebbing in laquers formulated from sprit-soluble resins.

n-Butanol occurs naturally as a minor product of the fermentation of sugars and other carbohydrates, and is present in many foods and beverages. It is also a permitted artificial flavorant in the United States, used in butter, cream, fruit, rum, whiskey, ice cream and ices, candy, baked goods and cordials. It is also used in a wide range of consumer products.
