Bioceramic Dome Advantages. Bioceramic dome technology enables a new level of success in architecture. The current construction industry uses four primary material families – wood, metal, concrete, and organic polymers (plastics). Now we have a fifth family. Chemically Bonded Ceramics (bioceramics) are a new class of geopolymers that are enabling cascades of innovation in construction.
