Geotextile Fabric Underlay
16 oz Nonwoven for Separation and Stabilization
The 16 oz. non woven geotextile is one of the heaviest fabric options available and is perfect for use under railroads, roads, or other locations that require both filtration and stabilization. The 16 oz. fabric features a high grab tensile strength of 380 lbs (comparable to woven models) while still allowing for a permeability level of 0.7 sec-1. The 16 oz. non woven geotextile is an excellent option for separation in areas with high water levels.

Non Woven Geotextile Fabric Applications and Uses
Non woven geotextiles have been used in several different applications involving the stabilization or separation of aggregates. When comparing the use of a woven or non woven geotextile, the nonwoven fabric is often used in applications where extra levels of filtration is required. Some common applications for these geotextiles have included the following:
- Geotextile Fabric Underlay
- Underlayment for Road Construction
- Sports Fields
- Drainage for Erosion Prone Areas
- Filtering for Various Particle-Laced Waters
- Erosion Control Applications
- Underlayment for Cracking Roads, Railroads and more
- Tough Embankments
