Masonry / Concrete Drills
Masonry drill bits can drill through concrete and have the name of masonry due to their ability to pierce through brick and stone. These drill bits are made with a tungsten carbide tip that is the strongest; when it comes to solid concrete, the sharper, the better. Masonry bits cuts holes in two steps.
First, is an insert of tungsten carbide is brazed into the steel to provide the cutting edges. Masonry bits commonly are used with hammer drills, which hammers the bit into the material being drilled as it rotates. Then, the hammering breaks up the masonry at the drill bit tip; and the rotating flutes carry away the dust.

When it comes to drilling into concrete, you know that you need a good quality masonry drill bit to get the job done. The size of your need, of course, depends on the size of the hole you need to create. One thing is sure, drilling into any brick, mortar, or concrete without using a masonry drill bit will be extremely challenging.
At Advance Drills there are a vast amount of different types of drill bits for use in masonry, though most of them will be carbide tungsten tipped which helps the bit maintain the sharpness of its cutting edge. Since they are mainly used with a hammer drill, this becomes vital as a poor quality bit will melt before your eyes in seconds when used on a very tough stone.
Also, rotating the bit also brings the cutting edges onto a fresh portion of the bottom of the hole with each hammer blow. Hammer drills frequently use unique shank shapes like the SDS type, which allows the bit to slide within the chuck when hammering without having to deal with executing the hammering motion.
As for types, there is a type for every job at Advance Drills, and picking the right bit for the job is crucial. Ranging from countersunk and hole saw bits for cutting large holes in brick walls; right through to spade lead and custom bits explicitly designed for cutting through ceramic tiles.
