are two basic types of woven geotextiles: slit-films which are made by
weaving flat strands created by first slitting a plastic sheet; and
monofilaments, which incorporate round strands that are extruded.
Woven slit-film geotextiles such as GEO 200, are typically preferred
for applications where filtration requirements are less critical. These
geotextiles aid in construction over soft or weak soils by providing
separation and stabilization.
Woven monofilament geotextiles, such as GEO 670, are preferred for
applications where both strength and filtration are a concern, such as
shoreline rip rap applications.
