Keep in mind that shear strength spread over a larger format tile means it doesn't really take a huge amount of bond to hold a tile in place. Peeling back puts a HUGE force along a very narrow line...

A big truck, hitting the thing at speed, creates a lot of stress that a rigid epoxy joint may not survive which is why I thought silicon might work because it is resilient, would still allow it to...
