Abietic acid is used to make ester gums in lacquers, varnishes and soaps. It is also used in metal resonates and plastics. Further, it is utilized in musical instruments to make them less slippery. It acts as a precursor to natural product synthesis. In addition to this, it is used to depackage integrated circuits from their epoxy coatings.
