Erosion Control Material

8 oz. Nonwoven Geotextile Material

8 oz nonwoven geotextile erosion control materialThe 8 oz. Nonwoven Erosion Control Material is one of the most popular options for drainage, stabilization, and aggregate separation. Designed as a high strength geotextile filter fabric, these products are frequently usd for the following:

  • French Drains
  • Trenches
  • Streams
  • Farms
  • Roads
  • Construction Sites
  • Secondary Containment

Additional fabric options include weights ranging anywhere from 4 oz. to 16 oz. For more information on these versatile geotextiles, visit our Nonwoven Fabric page

Nonwoven Geotextile Fabric Design and Uses

Standard design for the nonwoven fabric geotextile features a series of needle punched pores that allows water to
flow through the fabric. While the pores are large enough to allow water to pass through, they are small enough to prevent silt, dirt, aggregate, or other materials from passing through. This can help to effectively separate two layers
of soil that have differing physical properties (grain size distribution, consistency, density). This also prevents fine particles under stress from migrating.

Common Geotextile Uses:

  • Soil and Aggregate Separation
  • Subsoil Separator
  • Drainage Areas
  • Asphalt Overlay
  • Erosion Control Material
  • Construction Areas
  • Containment Liner Underlayment
  • Spill Berm Abrasion Protection
