A
*band*is defined as the intersection of the surface of a convex polyhedron with the space between two parallel planes, as long as this space does not contain any vertices of the polyhedron. An*unfolding*of a given band is obtained by cutting along exactly one edge and placing all faces of the band into the plane, without causing intersections. We prove that for a specific type of band there exists an appropriate edge to cut so that the band may be unfolded. **Comments**:- This paper is also available from the electronic proceedings as http://www.cs.concordia.ca/cccg/papers/45.pdf.
