    • The process is readily adaptable to joining ductile metals.
    • The current trend is to the more rational approach of basing the static design of ductile metals on the yield strength.
    • Despite Cal's returned stare he remained defiant in his obvious scrutiny of Cal from behind the glossy sheen of spectacles framed in yet more ductile gold.
    • Nickel is a silvery white metal and is both ductile and malleable.
    • Zinc is a bluish white metal that is neither ductile nor malleable.

    • Iron is a silvery white or grayish metal that is ductile and malleable.
    • Hafnium is a bright, silvery gray metal that is very ductile.
