10 oz. Nonwoven Geotextile
Nonwovens come in three different weight classes, lightweights, medium weights, and heavy weights. The 10 oz. geotextile fabric is the first of the heavy weights, the strongest and sturdiest of all the categories. The heavy weight geotextile fabric can measure up to the woven textiles in terms of strength, but will be able to filter significantly smaller particles. The 10 oz in particular has a grab tensile strength of 250 pounds which is the same as the 5 oz woven textile.
Unlike the woven fabrics, nonwovens use the needle punched process, allowing the fabric to elongate further or filter better. The two types of fabric can handle similar applications, like slope stabilization, however the non woven will be able to filter the sediment from coming through as well as stabilize. In the same application, the nonwoven also has the ability to warp better around the a slope with its elongation aspect. Being made out of polypropylene also helps with strength and UV resistance.

The 10 oz nonwovens filter thoroughly with a a flow rate of 80 gpm/ft². For geotextile that can handle a higher flow rate, other nonwoven geotextiles are available.
Other Nonwovens available include:
This non-woven geotextile still not strong enough? Need a stiffer design, better tear strength or faster water flow? The woven geotextile might be the geotextile fabric your application needs!
