George Frederick Muntz (1794-1857) was an industrialist and political reformer. He was a Liberal Party MP for Birmingham from 1840 until his death. As an industrialist, he developed Muntz metal, and he commercialised the alloy following his patent of 1832. The notable use of Muntz metal was in the hull of the Cutty Sark.
