Can you use a regular masonry drill bit for drilling in concrete?
If the drill bit is not equipped with a carbide tip, then drilling in concrete is not a great idea. In those cases, the tip of the drill bit is made from the same material as the rest of the drill bit. What distinguishes a drill bit that can be used for concrete, is the carbide tip. Our masonry drill bits are all equipped with this carbide tip, so yes, the regular masonry drill bits are also suitable for drilling in (soft) concrete. However, if you are working with hard concrete or reinforced concrete, we recommend using our SDS+ drill bits. These have been made specifically for drilling in concrete and for use with hammer drills.
How drill in a brick wall
Important to know is that when you are drilling in brick, the hammer function of your drill should be turned off. If you drill in brick using the hammer function, there is a high chance of breaking the brick. Fortunately, most hammer drills have a button that allows you to change the settings. Drilling in brick can also be done with a regular power drill, as long as it is a good drill with a high RPM.
