Malleability is a related to ductility,
Malleability is a property, which thin sheet can be formed by hammering and rolling very easily.
When ductility is ability to deform of material when tensile force is applied to that material.
Generally, for cheap and on-site production of waterproofing, a combination of aggregate chippings and aggregate dust is combined with bitumen emulsion and is completely laid over the constructed road. The emulsion itself can vary in type.
