Recycled paper and plastics are widely used in current society. Recycled paper is very helpful to reduce waste emissions and energy consumption, saving resource and cost and environment protection. Recycled paper tube is one of the most successful cases in application of recycled paper. Plastics and Recycled paper are excellent choices for packing materials. They are also used to construct 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 tube and paper tube laminated combined with polymer under lateral compressive load, both the paper tube and hybrid paper tube which was dipped in to the thermosets resin were tested and compared. The energy analysis was also conducted here.
