    $\begingroup$ Looking at outliner you have some modifiers on the object. Is there solidify? If yes that would explain it. Enabling Only Rim option on it would fix it. $\endgroup$ Jun 25, 2018 at 17:58
  • $\begingroup$ That did the trick. For those that don't know, in this instance you will find the -Only Rim- option In the solidify modifiers panel. $\endgroup$

    $\begingroup$ If you do want to use a full solidify, you can provide a material index offset-- this will look down the object's material list, n number of entries, to provide a different material for the rim and/or other side, via which you can have the other side use whatever material you want. $\endgroup$

Jaroslav Jerryno Novotn answered my question in the comments section. I did indeed have a solidify modifier on the object and as suggested, I enabled the Only Rim option in the solidify modifiers panel. This worked for me.
