Sika Corporation USA (Sika) is recalling certain SikaTITAN P2G automotive glass bonding adhesives for use on aftermarket automotive glass components. The affected adhesives may not sufficiently harden or cure. As a result, the glass may not be fully secured to the vehicle.
If the glass is not properly bonded to the vehicle, the glass may be displaced or fall out increasing the risk of injury to vehicle occupants, property damage, or a vehicle crash.
Sika will notify owners and inspect the vehicles. As necessary, the affected auto glass will be reinstalled with new adhesive product free of charge. The recall is expected to begin in April 2013. Customers may contact Sika at 1-248-307-2543 or 1-248-577-1074.
Owners may also contact the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration Vehicle Safety Hotline at 1-888-327-4236 (TTY 1-800-424-9153), or go to www.safercar.gov
