6 oz Drainage Geotextile
Nonwoven Fabric for Drainage and Separation
This 6 oz. drainage geotextile fabric is the perfect choice for applications requiring ground stabilization, aggregate separation, and soil reinforcement. As part of our non-woven geotextile variety, these fabrics are constructed with a needle-punched exterior that helps facilitate filtration applications.
This 6 oz. fabric is part of our light weight nonwoven geotextiles line that is perfect for drainage, asphalt overlay and various other filtration requirements. Light weight fabrics are slightly lower in strength, but feature increased permeability levels as high as 125 gpm/sq. ft. This makes them a great option for use in both street and french drains.

When is an Environmental Nonwoven Geotextile Used?
Nonwoven drainage geotextiles are typically used in a variety of different locations to help control erosion, stabilize roads, and reinforce areas prone to high levels of drainage applications.
The nonwoven material is generally known for its ability to help with separation, reinforcement, drainage, filtration, protection and waterproofing applications. Some common locations where these materials have been used include the following:
- Slope Reinforcement
- Landfill Lining and Stabilization
- Earth Retaining Structures
- Underlayment Fabric
- Landscaping Materials
- Pond Underlayment
- Walkway or Driveway Separation
(especially in areas such as dirt or gravel roadways)
A majority of our nonwoven fabrics are frequently used for applications involving outdoor storage. Made from a high resistance polypropylene material, these fabrics have been able to hold up against rotting, deterioration, and UV exposure applications.
