Ductility is the physical property of a material where it is capable of sustaining large permanent changes in shape without breaking. An example is when a piece of metal is drawn into a wire. It is characterized by the internal structure of the material flowing under shear stress.

Ductility is the amount that any material yields under shear stress. Gold, copper, aluminium, and steel have high ductility. Ductility is the property of solid to be drawn into wires.
