n-Pentane is used in consumer merchandise such as spot lifters/cleaners and foaming shave gels and in commercial products such as a blowing agent for expanded polystyrene (foam) insulation. It may also be used as a solvent (in pure form) in laboratory, chemical analysis, and other settings where a highly volatile non-polar solvent is needed.
