10 oz. Needle Punched Geotextile
Nonwoven Geotextile for Drainage and Separation
The 10 oz. nonwoven geotextile fabric is a reliable option for any application that requires superior strength and filtration capabilities. Often used to support areas during road repair, road construction and stabilization applications, our 10 oz. nonwoven geotextiles feature a needle-punched exterior that allows them to effectively filter water and keep areas stable.
Our needle punched geotextile fabric is made up of tangled threads of 100% polypropylene, which give it superior strength to stand up to the stresses of construction and installation. It's resistant to UV and natural degradation, providing a long lasting economical product.

When Should I Use a Nonwoven Geotextile?
As a general rule, the nonwoven needle punched geotextile has six basic functions:
While the nonwoven geotextile can be used for any of these functions, they are most commonly used in applications that require drainage, filtration, or erosion control. When compared to woven models, the nonwoven geotextile features a higher flow through rate that is suitable for areas that with higher water flows or increased filtration requirements. These functions are ideal when closing a lagoon, reinforcing slopes, constructing landfills, making asphalt overlay and retaining earth structures.
