Company divested itself of former Metalast name.

Nevada-based Chemeon Surface Technology LLC—which was formerly known as Metalast—says it has been authorized to sell its chemicals under its new name.

The company acquired all assets of Metalast International LLC in 2013 and changed its name to Chemeon in 2015. The new owners, Madylon and Dean Meiling, bought the company in receivership after Metalast was ordered sold by a Nevada judge. The Meilings say they were just two of about 1,000 shareholders of Metalast who had contributed more than $95 million to the previous owner.

Since early 2015, Chemeon has been working to distance itself from its former name, and to market its numerous products under the new corporate identity.

Madylon Meiling, who serves as Chemeon’s president, says that all QPD/QPL Mil-Spec product certifications for their products remain intact and these products remain available for purchase via their corresponding National Stock Numbers.

“Our products and services should be identified as Chemeon products and services, rather than referring to them as Metalast,” she says. “We will most prominently mark our products and services with the Chemeon name.”

Meiling also says that Chemeon is not associated with David Semas, the owner of certain federal registrations in the Metalast mark.
