Filter Fabric Geotextiles
8 oz Non Woven Geotextile
The 8 oz filter fabric is one of the strongest and most common medium weight non woven geotextiles. With a tensile strength of 205 pounds it can hold back a good amount of soil erosion. The 80 sieve is a great for filtering and is commonly used in french drain systems. Being made out of polypropylene, the fabric is strong, yet has the ability to form to other areas from the needle puncture process.
These geotextiles are a great alternative fabric for erosion control and are stronger and longer lasting than the coir and straw mats. Along with these factors, synthetic nonwovens are resistant against UV rays, mildew, biological degradation and many chemicals found in the ground.

Woven Geotextiles Alternative
An alternative for erosion solutions, other than the non-woven geotextile, is the woven geotextile. These textiles help with stabilization under rip rap, around erosion control areas and more. They are stronger and firmer then most woven textiles and can sometimes be better suited for some of these applications.
