Tear properties of fabrics may be determined using the tear method specified in ISO 13937. This test measures the fabric’s tear force, which is the force required to propagate a previously started single tear when the force is applied parallel to the cut and the fabric tears in the direction of the applied force. The force to continue the tear is over a specified distance at a constant rate of displacement. The tear force is calculated from the force peaks.
