What is modulus?

Modulus measures the resistance to stretch and is the amount of pull required to stretch the material (given in megapascals, MPa). The lower the modulus rating, the softer the glove feels to the wearer. If a glove is less resistant to stretch, it is less fatiguing to the hand. A low modulus glove is softer and easier to stretch and flex, whereby a high modulus glove is harder to move and stretch.
