6 oz. Nonwoven Geotextile
Filter Fabric for Slope Stabilization
6 oz. nonwoven geotextiles are the first size in the medium weight class for synthetic geotextiles. The medium weights range from 6-8 oz and can take on heavier applications than a lightweight filter fabric. They are a better sediment filter when running liquid through the textile, and when it comes to strength, they can stabilize, separate, and support erosion as well.
6 oz. nonwoven geotextiles are made from needle punctured polypropylene and feature a grab tensile strength of 160 pounds. More cost effective, stronger, and better at filtering than the organic geotextiles, our nonwoven geotextiles are often better suited for erosion control applications.
Nonwoven Geotextiles come in tensile strengths ranging from 80 to 380 pounds. Additionally, all polypropylene geotextiles are UV and chemical resistance.
Standard Erosion Control Applications
- Sediment Filter
- Erosion Control
- River Embankment
- Rip Rap Stabilization
- Subsurface Applications

If our nonwoven geotextiles are too flexible or not strong enough, try Woven Geotextiles. These textiles are designed for high strength stabilization areas, have a wide range of thicknesses, weight, and tensile strength that tend to be higher then the nonwoven.
