This paper presents the diagonal compression behaviour of wallettes constructed using wood-wool cement panel (WWCP). WWCP is a factory product and currently available for the construction industry in Malaysia especially for wall element in building construction. However, the structural behaviour under imposed load and the installation technique of this composite as wall system is still not well established. Therefore, the structural behaviour under diagonal compression load of plastered wallettes have been explored in this study. Two different installation techniques were designed and denoted as W1 and W2. Each wallettes have dimension of 600 mm x 600 mm were plastered with 16 mm and 20 mm mortar thicknesses. A total of twelve wallettes were prepared accordingly and tested. The results indicated that, the application of surface plaster significantly increased the loading capacity of both types of wallettes and wallettes W2 with 20 mm plaster thickness recorded the highest loading capacity of 106.10 kN.
