Nonwoven Geotextile Applications

Nonwoven geotextile filter fabrics are generally used for two basic functions:

  1. Filtration: As water passes from a layer of fine-grained soil to a coarse-grained soil, the fabric acts as a filter, retaining fine particles.

  2. Drainage: Protection of drainage areas can be an important requirement for any construction site or work area. Nonwovens work here to prevent soil, large particles and other items from entering a drain system.

Filtration and Drainage applications are also commonly seen in road work or stabilization efforts. Having a layer of nonwoven placed here can help to effectively drain water without leaving pockets or uneven areas in the bottom aggregate.

Nonwoven Geotextiles & Stalls

Another common use for 6 oz. geotextiles filters is around stalls or farms. Here, water often mixes into the surrounding soil to create high levels of mud. By using a nonwoven geotextile, these fabrics can help stabilize the area and filter out water.
