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.
