Non Woven Filter Fabric

8 oz Non Woven Geotextile

geotextile for erosion control

The 8 oz non woven 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.
