The Freud blade has Teflon/silicone coating, yes the red stuff. Supposed to stop pitch from sticking to blade.
Try cleaning the blade with an aggressive solvent, like chlorinated brake cleaner. It’s one of the few things that washes of silicone’s. Lacquer thinner would be by distant 2nd choice as the ketone/acetate in it are not quite as good on silicone. Aromatic hydrocarbons in MS don’t do much to silicone.

PS – have to clean the flange again too.

Best luck.
