Tensile strength of fabric: when the stretching force (load) is applied to the fabric, it begins to elongate. The stretching force( load) increases gradually, elongation also increases, when the amount of stretching force reaches on a certain point, the fabric begins to break. Now we can say that the tensile strength of the fabric is the amount of stretching force (load) at which the fabric begins to break when it comes under stretching conditions. It is measured in Newtons per square centimetre or pounds per square inch. It depends upon the yarn strength, material type or thread count per square inch of the fabric etc. the tensile strength of the fabric is determined separately in the warp and weft direction.
Synthetic fabrics have better tensile strength than natural fabrics.
The fabric made of fine and long staple fibres poses higher tensile strength than coarse and short fibres.
If the warp and the weft count of two fabrics are same, then the fabric having more threads per square inch will give higher tensile strength.
