Default Quazite enclosures

We have a job coming up where we will need to make holes of 3 different sizes in enclosures made from Quazite. The manufacturer recommends cutting holes in the material using a diamond core bit. We have been thinking about getting the Blue Boar dry cutting core bits so we could use them on an angle grinder and not need a water rig. I am concerned with whether this is more tool than we need and whether we are likely to damage the enclosure with its thin walls. The polymer aspect is supposed to make it strong but that is more in terms of a compression load but I don't know how that translates into side wall toughness or whether it has the brittle characteristics of cinder block. As thin as the side walls show in the enclosure drawings it seems like a TCT Stucco bit like the ones from Relton or Blue Boar would do the trick. These bits use a standard drill shank so even a 18v cordless would work (we have used this combination to quickly cut stucco walls with OSB sheathing) but I don't really have any hands on experience with Quazite. Any recommendations based on your experience with this product would be appreciated.
