API Slime Coat is a quite well-recognized water treatment product. Recently (this year) the parent company Mars Pharmaceuticals conducted a series of tests comparing the results obtained through the use of Stress Coat with Salt (NaCl) and also with just plain water.
I have attached a link tp the results of these tests for you to draw your own conclusions.

Browsed through it; very interesting. I'll have to go back over it but sounds like only ppv is beneficial in producing slime coat and aid in healing and that other treatments produce results worse than no treatment at all.

You read it correctly. In addition, there were no advantages in any of the groups with Koi.
Doesn't offer much of a reason to purchase their product.

PVP a.k.a. Providone a.k.a. Betadine is a widely used antiseptic known for its excellent anti-bacterial properties.
