Geotextile/Needle Punch

Product Details:

The main function of Geotextile Non Woven or Needle Punch or Polyester Non Woven is for filtration and separation. Often Geotextiles are used in civil construction projects to improve the characteristics of the soil. When soil is flyaway and considered poor soil, Geotextile or Needle Punch can make it more manageable. By doing so they allow a problematic area to become usable.  Another application of Geotextile or Needle Punch or Polyester Non Woven is for gardening or landscape use.  Therefore Geotextile is sometimes called Polyester Non Woven.

Please note that as an Indonesia Plastic Manufacturer and Exporter, we are also flexible in customizing the size and weight of our Polyester Non Woven according to your specific needs.

Geotextile has a general function as a separator, filter, and reinforcement in construction projects. This is one of the important components that will ensure the construction project goes well. Strange indeed, the combination of fabrics produced with certain techniques can actually have a very important role in the process of building roads, car parks, and also other important construction projects. Fabrics that are often used for clothing and bedding turned out to have a more important role in Civil Engineering. Engineers know how important Geotextiles are in their projects. Without it, engineers will find it very difficult to ensure the project runs on a proper timeline. One of the main functions of geo fabric is to ensure that soil, rock and other particles of different sizes are not mixed.

In the construction process, engineers must maintain stability and keep the soil characteristics by separating fine soil from aggregate in road construction. This process must be carried out in accordance with the level of thickness according to the design so that there is no mixing of two types of soil with different sizes. Now technicians only need to use Geotextile to separate the soil, to then coat it with soil with different characters and textures. This process will make the following construction easy so that the project can run according to the timeline. Time is a very important commodity because they have to do it right in a short time. Without Geotextile, the technicians need a long time so that the entire soil layer has the right texture and level of dryness. The Geotextile will ensure that wet soil and dry soil do not mix so that the construction process can continue.

Geotextile Non-Woven

For soil separation, technicians usually use a non-woven Geotextile made of polypropylene fabric. The manufacturing process with certain techniques will create random patterns that can create a good level of strength with good flow ability. Geotextiles are available in various types of thickness and weight levels so that they can be adapted to construction projects. The level of thickness will also affect the strength so you have to calculate the process of applying soil separation. To separate soil and rock with different types of ground-level, you need Geotextiles with the right composition.

Non-woven Geotextiles are often used in road construction projects on soft soils. In one stage of highway construction, technicians will add the ground with sand, stone, and gravel, where each of these elements must not mix together. We all know that stones and gravel tend to sink into the sand, which can degrade the quality of the road. The road surface will drop and make the road contour uneven, which of course could harm the driver. Using a non-woven Geotextile as a separator will ensure that sand, gravel and stone are not mixed so that the road surface remains hard and flat. The contours will not change even though the project is actually built on soft ground.

QnA About Geotextile

What are geotextiles in construction?

Geotextile Non Woven are synthetic and permeable materials used in construction projects to improve soil properties. Geotextiles have the ability to separate, filter, strengthen, protect and drain soil, making poor soil suitable for construction.

What is the function of geotextile?

Geotextile Non Woven has 5 main functions, namely:

  1. Separation / Pemisahan
  2. Filtration / Filtrasi
  3. Drainage / Drainase
  4. Reinforcement / Penguatan
  5. Protection / Perlindungan

Is geotextile a fabric?

Geotextile Non Woven is a permeable fabric made of PET or PP material with long (continuous) or short (staple) fibers.

Is geotextile waterproof?

There are two types of geotextiles, namely Geotextile Non Woven that are not waterproof and Geotextile Woven that are waterproof.

What are the types of geotextiles?

The Types of geotextile are Geotextile Non Woven and Geotextile Woven

What is the difference between woven and nonwoven geotextile fabric?

Geotextile Woven is a type of woven geotextile shaped like a plastic sack. Made of Polypropylene (PP).


Geotextile Non Woven is a type of geotextile that is not woven in the form of a fabric carpet. Made of Polyester (PET) or Polypropylene (PP).

What is the difference between geotextile and geogrid?

  • Geotextiles are made for separation, filtration and drainage purposes, while geogrids are specially made as reinforcements.
  • The Geogrid is unlikely to separate any type of infill. For example, if the subsoil is saturated, it can easily flow through the geogrid openings. However, geotextiles allow free flow of water from the ground to the rock formations and vice versa.
  • In general, geogrids can appear to be good reinforcements due to the meshing of the soil and grid membranes. However, geotextiles do provide a separation feature that guarantees their thickness, service life, and long-term strength.
  • Geogrid is a reinforcement that depends on passive resistance, and Geotextile is a reinforcement that depends on frictional resistance.

What is separation geotextile?

As a separator Geotextile is used to separate materials from one another so they don’t mix. An example of using Geotextile as a separator is in a road construction project on soft soil (eg muddy).

What does geotextile look like?

Geotextile Non Woven looks like a large white carpet
