Tile Drill Bits

Explore Our Selection of Tile Drill Bits

Drilling through tile can be a daunting task if you don't have the right tools. Tile drill bits are specifically designed to penetrate hard, brittle materials like ceramic, porcelain, and stone tiles without cracking or chipping.

What are Tile Drill Bits and How Do They Work?

Unlike standard drill bits for wood or metal, tile drill bits feature unique characteristics that make them suitable for tile:

Sharp and Hardwearing Material: Constructed from high-quality materials like tungsten carbide, tile drill bits possess exceptional sharpness and durability to effectively cut through hard tile surfaces.
Brazed Carbide Tips: The cutting edges of tile drill bits are typically brazed with carbide for increased strength and resistance to wear, ensuring clean and precise drilling.
Spear Point Tip: Many tile drill bits feature a spear point tip that acts as a centring point, preventing the bit from skipping or walking across the tile surface.

Choosing the Right Tile Drill Bit

Selecting the appropriate tile drill bit for your project involves considering a few key factors:

Hole size: Tile drill bits come in various diameters to accommodate different screw or fastener sizes. Choose a bit that matches the diameter of your chosen fastener.

Material: Some tile drill bits may be specifically designed for porcelain tiles, which are generally harder than ceramic tiles. Consider the specific type of tile you'll be drilling through.

Wet or Dry Drilling: Certain tile drill bits are designed for wet drilling, where water is used as a lubricant during the drilling process. Wet drilling helps reduce dust and heat buildup, extending the bit's life and minimising the risk of tile cracks.

At Toolstop, we offer a wide range of tile drill bits from reputable brands like Bosch and Abracs, available in numerous diameters to suit your drilling needs. Explore our selection to find the perfect drill bits for clean and precise drilling in any tile project!
