Needlepunched nonwoven geotextiles are strong performance technical textiles that effectively handle temperature fluctuations in many civil applications. Lightweight yet strong, they offer a good range of permeability and resistance to tear and punctures. Construction and civil engineering projects depend on Albarrie’s heavyweight needlepunch nonwoven geotextiles to provide environmental filtration, drainage, protection, separation, stabilization, reinforcement, and isolation. Contractors love that we offer rolls in custom widths and lengths for easy handling during installation.
Nonwoven geotextiles are commonly made from synthetic fibers such as polypropylene and polyester. Other fibers, such as polyethylene and polyimide, are available depending on the application. The 3D web-like structure in nonwoven geotextiles, delivers strength and porosity, making them ideal for many applications such as landfill and pool liners, tunnel drainage, geomembrane cushioning, railway or road construction, and erosion control.
Heavyweight nonwoven geotextiles are typically made from 10 to 16 oz/yd² (339 to 542 g/m²); however, Albarrie can produce weights up to 24 oz/yd² (813 g/m²) for superior protection in heavy-duty applications. We offer production runs in smaller quantities and custom-cut smaller rolls for easier handling and installation.
