    Perhaps malleable? (maleable en castellano).

    maleable: 1 : capable of being extended or shaped by beating with a hammer or by the pressure of rollers

    ¿Es esto alambre de COBRE, tu sabes, electrico? Necesito mas detalles del USO de este alambre.

    En joyeria se usa "soft wire" y "dead soft wire", por ejemplo, de plata.

    En transmision de electricidad, es alambre de cobre "soft" o "annealed". La razon es que al doblar metales (y alambre) se endurecen. Esto es malo en alambre electrico de cobre porque aumenta su resistencia electrica y disminuye su resistencia a romperse. El proceso de "hilado" para fabricar alambre de cobre, basicamente, causa el mismo efecto de doblarlo, con las mismas nefastas y funestas consequencias, asi que el ultimo paso de fabricar alambre de cobre es "ablandarlo" haciendo un "annealing".

    (Y tu pensabas que esta era una pregunta sencilla)
