Cages on some high speed bearings

Phenolic Cage A plastic cage material formed by the reaction of phenol and formaldehyde. Standard Small Parts and Bearings phenolic cages are either paper filled (KB type) or fabic filled (KC type). Phenolics have high impact strength, excellent wear characteristics, and dimensional stability up to around 110oC. Phenolic cages, being less susceptible to vibration and speed are used in bearings for high speed and high precision applications.

Bearings listed in the Small Parts and Bearings online catalogue with high speed cages may have various types of synthetic cage material. Look for the part codes which incorporate "KB" or "KC" to find items with Phenolic Cages.

You can purchase phenolic caged and other high speed bearings online in the Small Parts and Bearings High Speed Bearings Online Catalogue pages.
