Badger State Industries knows that maintaining an effective and safe road system for pedestrians, bicycles, and motor vehicles is an exhaustive challenge for transportation officials around the world. Traffic congestion, road conditions, and information signs demand their attention. And the cost of maintaining quality signage is rising. Badger State Industries decided to take on the problem of rising signage costs by investing in a cost-efficient and
environmentally friendly Hydrostripping system. The result is an innovative and economical solution for saving tax revenue and natural resources.

Hydrostripping is a revolutionary method of removing all grades of reflective sheeting from signs of all shapes and sizes, utilizing ultra-high pressure waterjet technology. This
environmentally friendly system does not use chemicals or sanding belts, nor does it produce any hazardous waste. In addition, Hydrostripping does not harm the corrosion resistant coatings that have previously been applied to the sign blank. The refurbished sign blanks are ready for re-facing and produce extensive savings over the cost of buying new aluminum. Hydrostripping is endorsed and certified by all of the major reflective sheeting manufacturers.

The Wisconsin DOT has been BSI's partner in the development of the Hydrostripping
industry. State regional offices are established collection sites. Consider joining BSI's growing list of state, county and municipal customers that are saving real money with refurbished sign blanks.

Refurbish, Recycle, Reuse. Call it whatever you want, the Hydrostripping process is the
perfect environmental and fiscal answer for rising sign costs. Energy and natural resource consumption are minimal in comparison to using new aluminum. Everybody knows, replacing worn and damaged signs with new reflective sheeting materials provides increased safety for motorists and pedestrians alike. Refurbishing, Recycling, and Reusing sign blanks with the Hydrostripper system is a cost-effective method for saving money and conserving natural resources.

Your high quality camera ready artwork is output on vinyl, then laminated between .020 Lexan and an aluminum or PVCA backing (Aluminum backing is .080 aluminum PVCA backing in customer choice of .125'' or .25'' PVCA) with high pressure rollers. These signs, designed for outdoor use, are UV resistant, vandal resistant, nonreflective and are excellent for detailed, high quality artwork. For Indoor use, medium protection, 2 mils thick film overlaminate is applied instead of Lexan.

Laminated signs are standard with square corners and without mounting holes NOTE: If mounting holes are required, please, specify so on the order. Holes drilled by the customer will damage the integrity of the sign and void any warranty

Sign sizes are always expressed as Width X Length and are available in sizes up to 36"x36"

We also offer sign frames.



We also offer:
ICS Laminated Posters

These 24" x 36" ICS form posters are made of flexible 0.023" white polyblend with Teflon overlaminate. The clear coating allows the instructor/commander to complete with a dry erase marker, erase and reuse the posters.


The Incident Command System (ICS) is a standardized, on-scene, all-hazard incident
management concept in the United States. It is a management protocol originally designed for emergency management agencies and later federalized. ICS is based upon a flexible, scalable response organization providing a common framework within which people can work together effectively. These people may be drawn from multiple agencies that do not routinely work together, and ICS is designed to give standard response and operation procedures to reduce the problems and potential for miscommunication on such incidents. ICS has been summarized as a "first-on-scene" structure, where the first responder on a scene has charge of the scene until the incident is resolved or the initial responder transitions incident command to an arriving, more-qualified individual.

No Smoking
