Hunt Refining Company is a large, regional supplier of both paving- and industrial-grade asphalt.

Asphalt emulsions are classified according to the electric charge that surrounds the asphalt particles (i.e. cationic, anionic emulsions) and how quickly the suspended asphalt particles break. When emulsions contact the aggregates in the mixer or are sprayed on the road, they will break (i.e. water will evaporate, leaving the asphalt cement). The terms RS (rapid setting), MS (medium setting) and SS (slow setting) are used to designate how quickly the emulsion breaks. These are relative since the speed at which an emulsion breaks is affected by the type and concentration of emulsifier and atmospheric conditions.
