10 oz. Nonwoven Geotextile
Nonwovens for Slope Stabilization
Nonwovens come in three different weight classes, lightweights, medium weights, and heavy weights. The 10 oz. nonwoven geotextile fabric is the first of the heavy weights, the strongest and sturdiest of all the categories. The heavy weight nonwoven, needle-punched geotextile can measure up to the woven textiles in terms of strength but can filter significantly smaller particles. The 10 oz in particular has a grab tensile strength of 250 pounds.
Unlike the woven geotextiles, nonwovens use the needle punched process, allowing the fabric to elongate further and filter better. The two types of fabric can handle similar applications, like slope stabilization. However the nonwoven geo fabric is able to filter sediment from coming through, as well as stabilizing it. Nonwoven geotextile also has the ability to wrap around a slope with its elongation aspect.
