The shape should not have an influence, rather, what you make them out of will depend on what temp range you need.

In my part of the world, range is 32F to 115F.

Just different additives and mixes.

Now to consider the important issue of interlocking trispokedovetiles against movement in the direction normal to the tiled plane, which for the application of tiled armour would be the normal to the armour surface, in the direction of a bullet's path.
BILAYER TRISPOKEDOVETILES
I propose that the unit armour tile be comprised of 2 joined trispokedovetiles with matching HEXAGON parameters but each with a different CIRCLE percentage.
 
For example, suppose we choose trispokedovetiles with CIRCLE = 100% and 121%.


 
The reason for choosing C100 for the outer layer of the armour is because its 120 angle corners would be more robust.
 
The reason for choosing C121 for the inner layer of the armour is because CIRCLE = 121% offers the largest percentage where the neck attacking the outer part rings is at least twice the thickness of the ring, attempting to balance the robustness of the ring parts to the robustness of the neck versus tensile stresses.
 

 
Stacking and joining those together forms a bilayer trispokedovetile, "C100+C121".


 
Drawing the 2 layers semi-transparently we can see how the bilayer trispokedovetiles would interlock in the normal to the plane.
 

 
2/3rds of the tiles can be slotted together, either the yellows and the blues or the yellows and the purples or the blues and the purples.
 
However the final 1/3rd of the tiles would not simply slot in and would have be inserted by joining the two halves of the bilayer trispokedovetile in situ.

I've been working on similar systems for a long time...

Can I get your permission to integrate some of your work with mine?

Really? Can you show me, or is your work and systems only "top secret" and not quite ready for "Above Top Secret" prime-time?

Well thanks for asking because others would perhaps "integrate" my original ideas, use my intellectual property, copy my work without acknowledging or respecting my undeniable copy-rights.

Yes, those who are careful to acknowledge my copyright by citing me as follows -

If there's money to be made out of my ideas then I want my fair share. No-one should expect to get away with passing my original ideas off as their own because the truth will be found out in any legal action that was required.

I'm not quite ready to put my stuff out in public, and it'll be awhile before I can do much more than mess with it in design software and do some basic simulation stuff with it.

You can be assured that if anything comes of it positive or negative that I'll contact you first before putting stuff out in public domain.

For now though it'll just be some casual and informal small scale experimentation.
