The ability of the dry paint film to resist mechanical impacts as scratching or penetration by hard object.
Harmonic filters are necessary for the elimination of the harmonic waves and for the production of the reactive power at line commutated converter stations.
Generally, harmonics are oscillations in the base power frequency.
Vertical plating bounding a hatch in order to stiffen its edges and resist entry of water to the space below.
A large steel structure fitted over a hatch opening to prevent the ingress of water into the cargo hold. It may also be the supporting structure for deck cargo.
Swing-seals – Hydraulically- or manually-operated seals for weathertight non-sequential operation. The swing-seal comprises a foldable steel beam fitted with gaskets.
The sealing between hatch covers and coaming is generally achieved by sliding rubber packing which is fitted to the panels and tightens against the top of coaming.

A hazard is a potential source of harm.
Administrative controls are training, procedure, policy, or shift designs that lessen the threat of a hazard to an individual.
Hazard elimination is a hazard control strategy based on completely removing a material or process causing a hazard.
Engineering controls are strategies designed to protect workers from hazardous conditions by placing a barrier between the worker and the hazard or by removing a hazardous substance through air ventilation.
Hazard substitution is a hazard control strategy in which a material or process is replaced with another that is less hazardous.
Also known as toxic air pollutants or air toxics, are those pollutants that cause or may cause cancer or other serious health effects, such as reproductive effects or birth defects, or adverse environmental and ecological effects.
