Non woven geotextile fabric is used for filtration, stabilization, erosion control, and drainage. Polypropylene non woven filter fabrics are more cost effective and last much longer than organic fabrics, such as coir and straw. The 3.5 oz non woven geotextile fabric is a lightweight non woven needle-punched geotextile that offers similar flow rates to temporary erosion control fabrics but has a grab tensile strength of 90 pounds. For even stronger control, non woven geotextile fabrics come in sizes up to 16 oz. with tensile strengths up to 425 lbs.
