Recycled paper is helpful to reduce trash discharge, save resource and cost. Recycled paper tube is one of the most successful cases in application of recycled paper. It is an excellent choice for packing. It’s also used in the construction of temporary structures for both exhibition spaces or for rapid-recovery shelters in emergency operations. As paper tubes are laminated composite materials composited of paperboard which is inherent anisotropy materials, the research on mechanical property and fracture behavior becomes more complicated. In order to analyze deformation and fracture behavior of paper tubes under lateral compressive load, six types of paper tube fabricated with different kinds of paperboard and number of ply were examined in this study. The six types included three different kinds of paperboard. Cracks propagation was observed through lateral compression test process. At the same time, energy absorption in elastic stage was discussed between different paper tubes.
