Hielscher Ultrasonics has released a technical article that discusses the ultrasonic dispersing of nanomaterials for paints and coatings.
Nanomaterials play a role in products such as paints, coatings, high-performance coatings or composites. Ultrasonic cavitation is used to disperse nano-sized particles in liquids, for example, in water, oil, solvents or epoxy resins.

Ultrasound-assisted sewage sludge treatment entails two significant benefits: by sonication, the digestibility of organic material is improved so that the yield of biogas is increased; and the residual sewage sludge is reduced.
Liposomes (liposome-lipid based vesicles), transferosomes (ultradeformable liposomes), ethosomes (ultradeformable vesicles with high alcohol content) and niosomes (synthetic vesicles) are microscopic vesicles that can be artificially prepared as globular carriers into which active molecules can be encapsulated. These vesicles, with diameters between 25nm and 5,000nm, are often used as drug carriers for topical purposes in the pharmaceutical and cosmetic industry, such as drug delivery, ...
This technical article from Hielscher Ultrasonics discusses the ultrasonic mixing of cement pastes, which is claimed to offer benefits for pre-cast moulding, dry-cast and concrete producers. The advantages include shorter initial and final set time, lower dosage of superplasticiser, faster and more complete hydration and higher compressive strength.
This video from Hielscher Ultrasonics focuses on the UIP1000 industrial ultrasonicator and the ultrasonic cavitation process.
This technical article from Hielscher explains what oxidative desulphurisation, high-power ultrasound and ultrasonic emulsification are, as well as the benefits of ultrasonication and disadvantages of hydrodesulphurisation.
