16 oz NonWoven Geotextile Fabric Underlay
NonWoven for Erosion Control, Separation & Underlayment
The 16 oz nonwoven geotextile is one of the heaviest fabric options available and is perfect for use under railroads, geomembranes 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. This makes this non woven geotextile the perfect option for separation in areas with high water levels.

When can I Use a Nonwoven Geotextile?
Nonwoven geotextiles have been used in several different applications involving the stabilization or separation of aggregates. When comparing the use of a woven or nonwoven geotextile, the non woven fabric is often used in applications where extra levels of filtration area 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
What is the Difference Between a Woven and Nonwoven Fabric?
The main different between the woven and nonwoven fabric is in terms of its construction and application.
