In terms of use, determining if this geotextile will work for your applications depends on a lot of different factors. The first thing we would need to know is what your application is and how you are planning to use a nonwoven geotextile to fulfill this application.

Other things we typically urge customers to consider includes:

  • Drainage Requirements: Depending on the amount of drainage required for your site, different fabrics may work better than others. Typically, the higher the strength of the fabric, the smaller the pores will be. Smaller pores means that water will filter through at a slightly slower rate.

  • Strength Requirements: The second thing you will want to consider is the amount of strength you will need. This can include how much weight the geotextile will need to hold as well as how much strength is required for the installation of the geotextile.
