Geotextile for Road Stabilization
Question: Hi. I am looking at a geotextile for road stabilization. I am interested in learning more about your 200 woven geotextile fabric. How does this work with road stabilization? What material is it using?
Answer: Thank you for contacting us! The W200 Woven Geotextile is one of many in our soil stabilization and separation fabrics. This fabrics are designed to filter materials, while acting as an effective separation between road, soils, and aggregates. This works by separating dissimilar items and helping to maintain the structural integrity of your road area.
Woven geotextiles contain several different features that help to create a successful stabilization or separation method in your location. For the W200 geotextile, there are several different features that help to provide strength and stability for your area. Features include:
- Woven Polypropylene Silt Film
- Grab Tensile Strength: 200 lbs.
- Grab Elongation: 15%
- Permittivity: 0.5 sec -1
- Water Flow: 5 gpm/sq. ft.
- Weight: 4 oz/yd²
- UV Stabilized
When using this geotextile as a method of separation or stabilization, these woven units are designed to form a type of barrier between your aggregates and other soil products. This helps to prevent mixing, allowing you to increase the structural stability of your soil.

Advantage of Woven Geotextiles
The woven geotextile for road stabilization is designed to act a barrier between two different soil products. This particular geotextile is constructed from the polypropylene silt film fabric that offers high strength and resistance to several different aspects of your application.
Advantages to the woven geotextile include:
- Cost Effective
- High Tensile Strength
- Low Elongation
- UV Resistant
- High Strength Fabric
- Biological Degradation Resistant
- Chemically Inert
- Rot Resistant
If you are looking for additional materials to help with applications such as filtration or drainage, you might also consider using a non-woven fabric. These fabrics contain only a needle-punched exterior that allow retention of soils and particles, while still providing a way for water to drain through the material.
