8 oz. Nonwoven Geotextile Fabric
Nonwoven Geotextile for Stabilization and Filtration Applications
Our 8 oz nonwoven geotextile fabric is made from 100% needle punched polypropylene for high filtration and stabilization applications. These medium strength geotextiles have been used for long-term applications that require extra strength, high UV resistance, and high rot prevention.
The 8 oz. nonwoven fabric is one of the most commonly used geotextiles and is great for erosion control, rip rap, soil stabilization and more. In addition to this 8 oz. nonwoven fabric, we also offer several additional fabrics to help with stabilization applications including a large variety of Woven Geotextiles and Nonwoven Geotextiles.

Nonwoven Geotextile Fabric Applications
The nonwoven geotextile fabric can be used in a wide range of applications to help with separation, filtration, drainage, ground reinforcement, overlay protection, and waterproofing applications. Made from a needle punched polypropylene material, these geotextiles offer a high resistance to UV exposure, rotting and other factors to help increase the longevity of your product.
The nonwoven fabric, known for its filtering abilities, has been used in several different applications including:
- Slope Reinforcement
- Landfill Lining
- Pond Reinforcement
- Retaining Structures
- Ground Stabilization
- Filtering Application
- Lagoon Lining
- Stabilization Applications
These geotextiles offer high strength in terms of resistances, stabilization and various other applications. Geotextiles are an excellent choice for separation and stabilization requirements as their exteriors provide a high strength setting for stabilizing top soil areas, separating aggregates, and reinforcing banks or shorelines.
If you are looking for something with a little additional strength, for a stabilization or separation application, please feel free to check out our Woven Geotextile Product Variety.
