Non-Woven Geotextile Filter Fabric (10 oz.) Details
The 10 oz. Non woven geotextile filter fabric is a durable and tough filter fabric. Of the three different weight classes, the 10 oz. non woven geotextile fabric is classified as heavy weight. It is made from polypropylene fibers that are needle punched in a random 3-D pattern, making them highly water permeable. This geo fabric is a cost-effective solution for stabilizing constructions sites and for filtration. The 10 oz. non woven geotextile fabric is UV and rot resistant. It withstands exposure to naturally occurring chemicals, is pH stable, provides a high level of filtration, and is equally as strong as woven filter fabrics. The needle punched fabric provides effective filtration, with a sieve of 100, permittivity rating of 1.2 sec-1, and a flow rate of 80 gpm/ft². This heavy weight non woven geotextile filter fabric is used for slope stabilization, aggregate separation, erosion control, and as a protective cushion and liner for geomembrane in retention ponds. For other geotextile fabric options, see; Geotextile Fabric Specifications Chart.

Mirafi® N-Series Filter Fabric
One of the other stronger filter fabrics we offer is the Mirafi® N-Series polypropylene nonwoven geotextile. This nonwoven geo fabric easily conforms to ground or trench surfaces, including French drains, ensuring a problem free installation. The N-series’ high flow-through rate and durability makes it the perfect filter fabric for drainage, filtration, and soil separation applications.
You can be confident that your constructed, in-place drainage system will give an effective filter performance. Our Mirafi® geotextiles filter cloth eliminates the challenge of determining the aggregate gradation required to match soil conditions.

Non Woven Geotextile Filter Fabric Applications
The 10 oz. non woven geotextile fabric is a heavy duty, high strength needle punched fabric with high filtration properties. Most commonly, it is used beneath dirt or paved roads for soil stabilization, wrapped around pipes for filtration, or used to provide a layer of filtration and separation between rock and soil. The 10 oz. geotextile fabric's tough composition makes it tear resistant and can withstand rugged conditions that lighter weight fabrics cannot. Additionally, with high elongation properties, the 10 oz. non woven geotextile filter fabric can easily flex to mold to the terrain.
Non woven geotextile filter fabric (10 oz.) is ideal for:
- Aggregate Separation
- Slope Stabilization
- Reinforcing Soils
- Erosion control and soil retention
- Rip Rap
- Railroad Construction
- Use as Protection for Geomembrane Liners in Retention Ponds
- Lining Driveways
- Sports Fields
Non Woven Geotextile Filter Fabric Installation
The instructions listed below provide a general installation guide for the 10 oz. non woven geotextile for drainage. If available, site and project specific installation instructions should take priority in the installation process.
- Prepare the project area. Remove stumps, rocks, and other objects to prevent damage to the geotextile fabric.
- Level the installment area so that it is as smooth as possible. Place the non woven geotextile fabric as indicated in the project plan. Leave an overlap of 12-18" at the edges.
- Secure the fabric using staples. Make sure the edges and where the rolls overlap are well secured.
- Backfill over the fabric to at least 6" depth. Poor ground soils may require a deeper backfill.

Non Woven Geotextile Filter Fabric Frequently Asked Questions
This will depend on the specifics of the project, but the 10 and 12 oz. non woven geotextile filter fabric is common for most average ballasts in railway construction projects. The 14 oz. geoxtextile fabric and 16 oz. geotextile fabrics are used for more rigorous site conditions. This is according to AREMA (American Railway Engineering and Maintenance-of-Way Association).
The 10 oz. non woven geotextile fabric can be placed either above or below the membrane to protect a geomembrane liner from puncture in retention or detention ponds. Placed below the membrane, it protects it from being damaged by any rocks or objects in the soil bed. Placed above the membrane, the 10 oz. geotextile fabric protects the membrane from damage that can occur on its surface.
