Irwin Multi-Material Drill Bits

Toting around different types of bits for different drilling tasks can be cumbersome, so every professional tradesman needs a single bit that’s capable of drilling through multiple types of materials.

IRWIN® Tools today announces the introduction of a full line of multi-material drill bits. IRWIN Multi-Material drill bits will drill through just about any type of material out there, including brick, block, tile, metal, wood, laminate, plastic, and marble — they'll even drill through multiple materials at the same time. They have a unique diamond-ground, four-facet carbide tip with super-sharp cutting edges that guarantee centered starts with no walking, fast drilling, and excellent hole quality. The versatile bits have a double-milled flute that removes dust and debris quickly and efficiently, which not only increases drilling speed (with no clogging), but results in longer bit life as well. These bits are built tough for hammer drilling, but recommended for use in rotary mode.

IRWIN Multi-Material drill bits are compatible with all standard 1/2" and 3/8” chuck drills. They are available in 3- to 5-inch jobber lengths and 16-inch extended length, with diameters ranging from 1/8 to 1/2 inches. They can be found at home centers, hardware stores, and construction and industrial tool distributors throughout the U.S. and Canada. The suggested retail price ranges from $3.99 to $20.99, depending on length and diameter.

IRWIN® Tools manufactures and distributes a broad line of hand tools and power tool accessories including VISE-GRIP® pliers and wrenches, MARATHON® saw blades, QUICK-GRIP® clamping tools, SPEEDBOR® wood drilling bits, STRAIT-LINE® marking tools, UNIBIT® step drill bits, MARPLES® fine woodworking tools, and HANSON® taps and dies. IRWIN Tools is a part of Newell Rubbermaid’s global portfolio of leading brands. For more information, call 1-800-GO-IRWIN or visit www.irwin.com . IRWIN invites the nation to celebrate National Tradesmen Day, on Friday, Sept. 20, 2013.
