FAG single row angular contact ball bearings are self-retaining units with solid inner and outer rings and ball and cage assemblies with polyamide, sheet metal or brass cages.
FAG angular contact ball bearings with solid cages made from glass fibre reinforced polyamide have the suffix TVP or TVH.
Solid brass cages have the suffix MP.
FAG single row angular contact ball bearings are also available with universally applicable sheet steel window cages (suffix JP).
Check the chemical resistance of polyamide to synthetic greases and lubricants with EP additives.
Aged oil and additives in the oil can impair the operating life of plastic cages at high temperatures.
The oil change intervals must be observed.

Other cage designs are available by agreement. With such cages, suitability for high speeds and high temperatures as well as the basic load ratings may differ from the values for bearings with standard cages.
