We have studied the tearing strength of substrate woven fabric, substrate with adhesive, flocked fabric and washed flocked fabric on dry and wet conditions. The tensile strength of the rubbed flocked fabric and rubbed washed flocked fabrics in dry and wet conditions were also researched, and a statistical model was developed for the analysis of the tearing behavior of these fabric forms.
