|Material||Steel with tungsten carbide tip|
Tough substances such as concrete, brick or stone need a specific kind of drill bit that is designed to efficiently cut through masonry. This type of bit is generally steel with a tungsten carbide tip which stays sharper for much longer than a standard drill bit.
This SDS drill bit (slotted drive shaft) is 8mm in diameter and 160mm in length and it locks firmly into the drill via a notched connection; this connection ensures that the drill withstands the heavy force when drilling into hard masonry substances.
The tip of the masonry drill bit is of a larger diameter than the rest of the bit, this ensures that when the shaft of the drill bit reaches the hole it will fit into it. Drilling at a lower speed will stop any overheating when cutting into very hard substances.
Designed for use with SDS+ rotary percussion/hammer drills. They can be used with a standard drill also, however the hammer drill is a much better option; the regular drill will take longer as it does not have the hammering action which breaks up the masonry at the drill tip and depends on its own turning speed. These tips can reduce the occurrence of cracking or chips and can help reduce level of noise during use.
