That B&Q stuff looks similar to YBS airtec double, as above its not really a good insulator; it will provide a seal and reflect some heat back into the house so it'll work as insulation to some extent. I've used it in my loft with 70mm PIR insulation behind it in between the rafters. Its better than nothing...

Regarding any plastic based insulation used in a domestic loft such as PIR, Celotex and similar.......home owners should be made aware that whilst the product is labelled as Fire Retardant (as a result of small scale testing) it will create a far more intense fire once fully ignited as markedly demonstrated recently at Grenfell House......the toxic fumes are lethal so, frankly, no house should employ this type of product in the loft and especially not as a baseboard for a model railway with lots of electrickery around......but one has to weigh up the risk as with everything........HB
