fibres à module élevé
Explanation:
module: (dans votre contexte) le rapport entre un effort de déformation donné et la déformation produite. Plus le module est élevé, moins le textile se déforme (le kevlar, par exemple, a un module plus élevé que le canevas de coton - c'est pourquoi on construit des vestes parre-balles avec du kevlar et non du canevas).
