8 oz Nonwoven Geotextiles Details
The strongest and most rugged of the medium-weight nonwoven geotextiles, 8 oz geotextile fabric is an industry standard and often used for a variety of projects. With a grab tensile strength of 205 pounds and a flow rate of up to 80 gpm, it can withstand the pressure of sediment control on hillsides, riverbanks and beneath rip rap. Non woven geotextile fabric (8 oz) is also pliable and flexible, making it a practical fabric for French drain systems. One of our medium-strength geotextiles, 8 oz needle punched filter fabric is popular for long-term applications that require a combination of strength and accommodation of moderate flow rates. 8 oz geotextile fabric is also often used to separate soils and aggregates for a protective cushioning underlayment.

Mirafi® Nonwoven Geotextile Filter Fabric
One of our other popular nonwoven filter fabrics is the Mirafi® N-Series polypropylene nonwoven geotextile. This needle-punched filter fabric is constructed to easily conform to ground or trench surfaces for a problem free installation. The N-series’ high flow-through rate makes this drainage fabric perfect for French drains and other soil separation, drainage and filtration applications. Mirafi® filter fabrics eliminate the challenge of determining aggregate gradation required to match soil conditions, ensuring constructed drainage provides effective filter performance. Find out more about the Mirafi® N-Series or visit our Mirafi® Nonwoven Geotextile page to see all of our Mirafi® options.
8 oz Nonwoven Geotextiles Applications
Nonwoven geotextiles can be used in a wide range of applications to help with separation, filtration, drainage, ground reinforcement, and even cushioning protection. Made from polypropylene fibers, 8 oz geo filter fabric offers a high resistance to UV exposure, rotting and other factors to help increase longevity in the field. Non Woven Geotextile Fabric (8 oz) is commonly used for applications such as:
- Slope Reinforcement
- Landfill Lining
- Pond Reinforcement
- Retaining Structures
- French Drains
- Cushioning Underlayment
- Ground Stabilization
- Filtering & Drainage
- Lagoon Lining
- Road Construction
- Railroad Repairs
- Shoreline Stabilization
For projects that need fabric with greater strength and less filtration, consider Woven Geotextiles as a possible solution.

8 oz Nonwoven Geotextiles Frequently Asked Questions
Nonwoven geotextiles are broken into three general classifications: lightweight, medium weight, and heavy weight. These classifications are to offer guidance in selecting the best nonwoven geotextile for a project. Lightweight geotextile fabrics (3 oz to 5 oz) are designed for projects that need fast drainage, that can handle a high volume of water (or liquid), and where the environmental conditions are fairly mild. Heavy weight geotextiles are designed for projects that have rigorous conditions and need a strong, tear-resistant fabric that can handle a fair amount of stress-loading without being able to process as much stormwater. Medium weight nonwoven geotextiles are for more moderate conditions.
The unique properties of a nonwoven fabric are illustrated through the measurements listed in the product specifications. Some commonly listed specifications include:
- Weight: The number of ounces per square yard.
- Grab Tensile Strength and Elongation: Indicate the breaking load of the fabric.
- Trapezoidal Tear Strength & CBR Puncture Resistance: Are two different methods of measurements indicating the strength of the fabric under tension.
- Permittivity & Permeability: measure the rate of water flow through the fabric.
- AOS (Apparent Opening Size): Fabrics with a higher percentage of open area experience less clogging. Check our Nonwoven Geotextile FAQ page for more information.
