The main purpose of Butyric acid is to create butyrate cellulose butyrate. For the manufacture of thermoformed signs, glasses, car steering wheel. It is much stronger than cellulose acetate in aging,water resistance,shrinkage, etc. Butyric acid is also widely used to make varnishes and molding powder. In addition, Butyric acid used in the synthesis of various types of butyrate which is featured with pleasant fruit flavor. Daily flavor Linalyl butyric acid and butyric acid are also geraniol ester derivatives. A very small amount of Butyric acid can send a very strong, very strong odor when used for Flavors.
