lacerated

Here is my best explanation:

'torn' is the definition.
(lacerating is a kind of tearing)

'material gets valued' is the wordplay.
'material' becomes 'lace' (lace is a kind of material**).
'gets' means one lot of letters go next to another.
'valued' becomes 'rated' (rating is a kind of valuing).
'lace'+'rated'='LACERATED'
