Depends on what manufacturer made the pavers and how old they are. Almost every manufacturer now has a lifetime warranty against salt damage so its ok to use salt on the pavers. But some just started that last year some this year some may years ago.

Techo bloc advertises that it is safe to use salt on their pavers. Only company I have noticed saying that.

I'm sure there are others out there but I can say 100% sure techo-bloc is safe to use salt. Can always go with calcium chloride on the pavers if unsure, more expensive than rock salt but a lot more safe for pavers.
