Geotextiles are permeable fabrics which, when used in association with soil, have the ability to separate, filter, reinforce, protect, or drain. Typically made from polypropylene or polyester, geotextile fabrics come in three basic forms: woven, needle punched, or heat bonded. Geotextile composites have been introduced and products such as geogrids and meshes have been developed. Geotextiles are able to withstand many things, are durable, and are able to soften a fall if someone falls down.
Woven and nonwoven geotextiles are robust and durable fabrics designed to increase soil stabilization and ground support in a given location. Typically made from polypropylene fibers, these geotextiles are high in strength to allow for maximum slope support, stabilization and erosion control. Geo fabric options include a felt-like nonwoven fabric as well as a woven polypropylene geotextile.
As for how to understand the Applications of Geotextile , you can use this chart to determine which type and weight of geotextile is best for your project.
Geotextile fabrics are manufactured in different weights to accommodate specific project needs for durability, drainage, and other factors.
