This article describes a process for fabricating a high resolution embossing die having very deep patterns with desired wall profile in a hard, abrasion-resistant material such as Mo, Ti, SiC, TiC or WC, which can be subsequently used to press patterns into polymers containing Al2O3, gamma - Fe2O3 or similar abrasive particles. Critical conditions for carrying out the process so as to achieve the desired results are also described.
