Properties

Elasticity- The ability of a material to bend and then return to it's original shape and size.

Conductivity- The ability of a material to conduct heat or electrical energy.

Strength- The ability of a material to withstand a force without breaking or bending.

Plasticity- The ability of a material to permanently change in shape.

Malleability- The ability of a material to permanently deform in all directions without cracking.

Ductility- The ability of a material to deform, usually by stretching along it's length.

Hardness- The ability of a material to resist wear, scratching and indentation.

Toughness- The ability of a material to withstand blows or sudden shock without breaking.

Durability- The ability of a material to withstand wear, especially as a result of weathering.

Fusibility- The ability of a material to change into a liquid or molten state when heated to it's melting point.
