8 oz. Nonwoven Geotextile

Filter Fabric for Sediment Control

8 oz nonwoven geotextileThe 8 oz filter fabric is one of the strongest and most common medium weight nonwoven geotextiles. With a tensile strength of 205 pounds, it can provide sediment control on hillsides and riverbanks. It is great for filtering and commonly used in french drain systems. Made of polypropylene with a needle puncture process, the fabric is strong and flexible.

Our geotextiles are a great alternative fabric for erosion control. They are stronger and last longer than biodegradable mats. Along with these factors, synthetic nonwoven geotextiles are resistant against UV rays, mildew, biological degradation, and many chemicals found in the ground.
