Strange "single-point" decal distortion/pixelation on flat surfaces of tin render

Having a very strange issue with placing decals on the top and bottom of a tin 3d file (provided as 3d pdf by the manufacturer, then I opened it in Photoshop and exported as .obj).

 

The curved areas look great, but the flat areas on the top and bottom have a strange "pinpoint" serrated issue. Is this an issue in Dimension or an issue that I can somehow correct in Photoshop?

 

Other than this issue, the .obj works perfectly.

 

Thanks for any help!
