Answer:

Well, as well as #"malleability"#, metallic bonding confers #"ductility"#...

Explanation:

And #"ductility"# means that the material is capable of being drawn into a wire. And a second property that metallic bonding, metal ions in an electron sea, confers is electrical conductivity...and thus wires may conduct an electric current.
