Why should ceramic tile leave seam

After hearing this question, lots babies’ first thought is because ceramic tile is not so big as the room, but when splicing the tiles, it's not easy to get 100% of the pieces on each other, so there are cracks naturally~

No~ No~ No~ That's not true.

Any object has thermal expansion and cold contraction, because of the density and volume of the matter, the rate of thermal expansion and cold contraction is different. Ceramic tile is no exception, if the gap left by ordinary ceramic tile is too small, may lead to poor environment strain capacity for the ceramic tiles, once the temperature changes, there will be ceramic tile arch, fracture and other phenomena, so we leave this seam, it is also known as expansion joint.
