Woven Geotextile Fabrics

Woven fabrics include a wide array of fabrics and can be made of either polypropylene yarns or polyester yarns or in some cases a mixture of the two. Generally polypropylene is used in lower strength applications. Slit film polypropylene yarns are utilized to make separation fabric that has a relatively low water flow rate and provides superior reinforcement when compared to a similar weight nonwoven polypropylene fabric. Higher strength woven fabrics can be used in slope reinforcement including reinforcing critical applications such as levies. Read More

Benefits of Woven Geotextile Fabrics

  • Woven geotextiles offer a high load capacity, making them a good fit for heavy-duty applications.
  • These geotextiles have a non-porous structure. They can prevent water from draining through the soil beneath, making them a good fit for erosion control projects.
  • Woven geotextiles are durable and corrosion resistant.

Difference Between Woven and Nonwoven Geotextiles

  • Woven geotextiles have high strength values, while nonwoven geotextiles have high water permittivity.
  • Woven geotextiles have lower elongation than nonwoven geotextiles. Their elongation is usually between 5% and 20% while that of nonwoven geotextiles is generally higher than 50%.

Applications of Woven Geotextiles

Woven geotextiles are used in road construction projects to stabilize the ground under the road, which is being constructed. Road constructors also use them to separate aggregate layers. Woven geotextiles are also used in:

  • Gravel driveways
  • Agriculture
  • Erosion control projects
  • Logging road access
  • Most unpaved roads
