Nonwoven geotextiles are made by needling or other methods of entangling long or short fibers together. Some additional heat treatment is then applied to further increase the strength of the geotextile. Because of this manufacturing process and its permeability, nonwoven geotextiles are often best suited for use in drainage, separation, filtration, and protection applications. Nonwoven fabrics are weight (i.e., gsm ) and are more like the felt in feel and appearance.
Woven or non-woven geotextiles have a variety of uses, so whether you need ground stabilization, subgrade, separation of aggregates and other materials, or drainage and filtration, there is now a geotextile for your project. Make sure you choose the right option every time.
