The need for more effective drilling tools has been driven by the introduction of super hard decorative wall and floor tiles. Carbide tipped spear point drills are no longer capable when faced with drilling into ultra hard materials. They can chip the surface, they work at a slow drilling speed and have a poor lifetime with minimal holes per drill bit.
Have you ever wondered why your electroplated diamond drill does not last very long? It's because they are more aggressive and have a single layer of sharp, pointed diamond crystals. Once the layer of diamonds is worn down the life of the drill bit is over. Not to mention that they also depend upon water that can leave a work area messy, require a water bottle, hose and hole guide!
We think that Mexco Tile Drill Range brings an exciting new era in tile drilling. These bits offer fast precise drilling in porcelain, marble, granite, ceramics and other ultra-hard materials. A vacuum brazed diamond tip provides for fast drilling, ease of use, reduced mess, increased lifetime and a professional finish. They can save you both, time and money.
These tile drill bits like to be drilled fast. Mexco recommends using them on a high-speed drill or an angle grinder. Vacuum brazing requires a more resilient diamond crystal to withstand the extreme heat and pressure whereas Mexco drills have duller more rounded diamond crystals. That makes them stronger.
The fact that they do not require water and are self-cooled is one of their main benefits. Use them correctly and they will drill more than 50 holes for you into ultra-hard materials. They are perfect for bathroom installers, kitchen fitters, plumbers, electricians, tilers and general builders.
When choosing your next diamond tile drill make sure it’s a Mexco drill bit, Demand the best!
