No, ductility is measured as at least 14% elongation and at least 30% reduction in area. I have a chart listing the following fasteners as ductile by this definition:
Not necessarily true either. Ductility is strongly affected by the presence of a notch in stronger steels with %EL between 20% and 25%. % elongation drops off some with temperature, but it doesn't drop off as fast as Charpy test results.
