Non Woven Geotextiles
Non woven Geotextiles Fabrics are probably the most commonly known geotextiles. Nonwoven polypropylene fabric, which has a felt-like consistency, combines strength and watr flow. Available in varying weights and thicknesses, the fabrics are strong but permeable, allowing for varied uses. Nonwoven fabrics commonly are used as a separator between subsoils and rock riprap, and they also are used to separate soils and sized stone in many ground-level and subsurface drainage applications. Nonwoven Geotextile Fabrics have a random, three dimensional pore structure and are highly water permeable, as is necessary in many geotextile end uses. A wide range of fabric weights ranging from 3.1oz. to over 16 oz. is offered to meet the requirements of various Non-woven applications. Custom sizes are available with all of our Woven and Non Woven Geotextile Fabrics. We offer the lighter weight Non wovens fabrics in 3' X 300' and 3' X 360' rolls for use as Pipe Wrap. Below are our standard weights and sizes.

Woven geotextiles are made from polypropylene as well, but the manufacturing process, product characteristics and applications differ dramatically from those of nonwovens. Narrow strands of polypropylene tape are woven together during manufacturing, producing a tough fabric, but one with much less permeability than nonwovens. Commonly known as ground stabilization fabric, wovens are effective in separating less desirable subsoils from gravel or paved surfaces.
By effectively bridging over poorer-quality soils, they can provide savings in material costs and project life cycles. Perhaps the easiest way to understand the value of soil separation in roadway construction is to be aware that stone and gravel tend to sink into softer soils. A simple adage that road builders have used for years goes something like this: “Five pounds of stone on top of five pounds of mud equals ten pounds of mud.”
This group adds a third dimension to the geotextile toolbox. In the manufacturing process, individual polypropylene filaments are woven together to form a fabric that resembles nylon screen cloth. Woven monofilaments are available with varying opening sizes to match up appropriately with site soil, and the result is a geotextile fabric that combines excellent flow ability with durability and strength.
Uses for woven monofilaments are many and varied. They often are implemented in specialized applications where permeability is important, such as in drainage swale sides and bottoms. More recently, these geotextiles have been used in the construction of filter bags used to protect storm water inlet structures from construction site sediment.

Spun-bonded geotextiles. Rugged, nonwoven fabrics appropriate for many applications, particularly in landscape construction, spun-bound geotextiles are used by landscapers to separate subsoils from surface stone or mulch and control weeds. Like wovens and nonwovens, spun-bonded geotextiles are used extensively in construction applications but most commonly used as Landscape Fabric.
